Did you mean moc?

That's also why I'm not worried about QMetaObject. The changes I've seen so 
far incorporate some Q_PROPERTY changes to let moc know of the new storage 
type. So anyone using QMetaObject and QObject::property/setProperty should not 
be affected.

But that needs to be described in the coding guide.
