No, there are no plans. But it is good that people are experimenting 
with different alternative solutions. For the moment, there is no broad 
enough support on the horizon yet for any of the technologies needed to 
actually do this, without leaving essential platforms Qt is supported on 
behind. That means that for now, it is a no-go. But that doesn't mean 
the issue won't be revisited in the future and experiments on approaches 
to replace moc give insight in what's really needed and what is feasible 
and what is not. I, for one, also liked Woboq's experiments to 
reimplement moc using clang extensions, making the code generation part 
of the actual compilation. But it is obvious that that is not going to 
work on, say, MSVS 2012.
