It is just sharing code. The important difference is that both modules are 
developed at the same time and released at the same time, by the same team. If 
they introduce a breaking change in one, they can fix the other. They also 
write one expecting only the other is using the private API, so they can 
optimise for it and assume no one else is trying to use it.

 That's not the case with your code.

Import it into the Qt Project.
