Deep down it's basically all the same. The Qt way of handling callbacks
doesn't rely, at least directly, on pointers to member functions. As
this eliminates the risk of having to deal directly with issues related
to typesafe violations, it makes it a bit more user-friendly. After
all, no one enjoys having to deal with a long string of compiler and
runtime errors. But other than this, it's basically all the same.
