Then simply don't use QT += widgets in model.pro. If you accidentally include
<QWidgets/QAction> in a public header of model.dll, you *are* introducing
widgets as a dependency of model.dll for downstreams. If I don't install
QtWidgets, the header won't be there, and I can't use model.dll.
Your build tools don't tell you that there is a problem. It compiles just fine
(for you), even though the include should not be there. If you instead include
<QAction>, your compiler will not find that header and you will immediately
know you made a mistake.
