Note that the exact syntax would be

filter: ({"qbs.targetOS": ["windows", "darwin"]})
// extra parenthesis, because that's how the QML parser
// distinguishes between blocks and object literals

or alternatively
filter: { return {"qbs.targetOS": ["windows", "darwin"]}; }

Is it really worth it, given that we want extend Array to have a 
contains method anyway, which would make the code less verbose again?
