Isn't it a bit strange that there are things in the public API that 
really are private?

If you built your own code on top of Qt, then I at least find it nice to 
be able to create similar API to what Qt offers so it is easier to use 
for other developers. This is made more difficult by things like this. 
It was easy to offer an API like the

      QAction <qthelp://com.trolltech.qt.484/qdoc/qaction.html>*
      QToolBar::addAction( constQString

in your own code. Nothing private there. But apparently, mirroring Qt 
API design for the sake of consistency is no longer possible?
