Consider source file and .qbs file residing in:
- D:\projects\projectname\trunk\src\productname\productname.qbs

Then <srcpath> results to:
- modulename\foldername\subfoldername

Note: We would typically place the target folder at:
- D:\projects\projectname\trunk\target

This doesn't sounds like too long names at the first glance, however they
may become much longer for specific project, product, module and class
names. (One of our developers has reached the limits already.)
