[Interest] How to determine at compile time that given enum type is Q_ENUMed?

Kinda figured out how to do this:

template<typename T, typename = void>
inline constexpr bool isQEnum = false;

template<typename T>
inline constexpr bool isQEnum<T,
std::void_t<decltype(qt_getEnumMetaObject(std::declval<T>()))>> =
It's not the best approach since it uses undocumented Q_ENUM
internals, but it's probably stable (I'm not sure if
qt_getEnumMetaObject functions are part of ABI though).
