[Interest] Does Qt have a cross platform + mobile "QSystemTrayIcon"?

First of, the QSystemTrayIcon doc [1] seems extremely outdated so i don't
know if this question is valid with that specific class name.

So what i'm searching for is this, a class that just sends a system(tray)
notification that pops up in the place where all notifications pop up. And
then really cross platform!

In KDE that would be the lower right corner
In Gnome that would be the upper right corner
In Mac also the upper right corner
In Windows (XP, Vista, 7) in the lower right corner
In Windows 8.. don't know how it's done there, i try to stay away from it.
In Android in the notification area
In iOS in the notification area
In Windows Mobile in the notification area
In <YOUR_OTHER_MOBILE_OS> in the notification area

On all platforms it should naturally show the notification in their native
OS theme so for that QSystemTrayIcon is a bit obsolete since it even shows
the Windows XP style popup on Windows Vista (that's the last time i tried
it a couple years ago).

Does the above exist? If so, where can i find it?
