I can. The very first signal I tried showed it. I opened qiodevice.cpp and 
searched for "emit ". There's only one.

But this is not *wrong*. Signals are functions and they have a body. However, 
if Qt Creator can be made to give preference to the declaration in case 
definition is in a generated file, it might improve UX.

I've seen the refactor example not tick some boxes but didn't try to discern a 
pattern on why some weren't checked. I do remember it being correct for my 
purposes, though.
