Hello Simon,

As a user, I find this project very interesting, as after learning
QML, I often found myself wanting to use some kind of binding system
when coding in C++.

One question that comes to mind when you mention lazy evaluation: how
does this interact with the "onPropertyChanged" signal? In QML, one
sometimes sees code like :

    onFullnameChanged: {
        console.log("the fullname changed!");

At first glance, this doesn't seem compatible with lazy evaluation.
