Yes, true. Presuming the enum values assigned by the compiler and thus 0-based 
and incremented by 1.

I didn't read the algorithmic complexity section and wasn't encumbered with a 
particular amount of relevant background on the container classes either. Thus, 
the claim that "With QMap, the items are always sorted by key" made it seem 
somewhat more appropriate for a case where you get the keys in sorted order 
simply by copy/paste.
