FWIW - I remember this being such a problem in Qtopia that the internal 
builds setup the include directory so that even <Module/Header> would 
not actually work unless you'd done the required QT += module.

I think it was something like


with both include/Module and include/Module/.module added to the 
INCLUDEPATH (and include explicitly removed from INCLUDEPATH just in 
case a developer tried to add it in their .pro file).

It should be a relatively minor change to syncqt and qt.prf to implement 
this for Qt.
