I think what you want to know is: Does Qt provide an API that you can 
use, which results in Lion's autosave/versions being used. The answer is No.

If you want "Mac" document handling (including Lion autosave/versions), 
you need to use NSDocument.

If you have an app based on the MV or MVC pattern, you can replace your 
"model" class with something that wraps NSDocument.

For example, I found this sample document-based app using Qt. It does 
not use NSDocument but it should not be particularly hard to modify it 
so that it does.
