The long story short is that the begin pointer and size members move from the 
d pointer to the actual object. The slightly longer story is that it's 
implemented using QArrayDataPointer and the supposedly exception-safe, tag-
dispatched operations in QArrayDataOps that João wrote 7-8 years ago.

I also introduced a QGenericArray class that QVector derives from and QList 
could have, but doesn't look like it will be necessary for Qt 6.
