There's nothing wrong with doing that, but it would be even better to 
submit a patch to the documentation.

Also, I've seen this statement several times before, and it's wrong. The 
documentation could certainly be better, because it's not the best 
approach that's described there. But it's *not wrong*. I'll use that 
approach whenever it suits my needs, and the other approaches when that 
makes sense. The biggest problem with the documented approach is that 
new Qt coders are always surprised with the parent-child relationship 
around the thread. If a coder understands this, it's perfectly fine to 
use the documented approach.

If you set out to correct the documentation, you should make it better, 
not go from one one-sided way of thinking to another.
