I assumed that the C++ standard said that the first parameter of a function
would be "this". Most compilers probably do it this way, but I'm not sure
if this is
part of the standard or not.

I made a mistake in my example of QPushButton_setFlat(). the parameters
should have been (QPushButton *, bool) instead of just (bool).
