Thanks, the ticket describes the typical 3rd party dilema: There are
many 3rd-party libraries with a quite complex build process, which is
already implemented in .pro, Makefile...
In order to get known to qbs, my intention was to add some custom
modules to workaround the issues. The Qt Creator integration isn't my
first goal.

Best regards,
