This is highly debatable. Sure, there's lots of cargo cult mentality in 
the software industry, and this could be used to shift the blame on Qt. 
On the other hand there's only so much we can do in terms of warning 
users about the consequences of flipping the switch in their _pre 
existing_ code base.

(Switch that I'd like to keep in the QList=QArrayList by default.)
