Hi there,

I was looking at the usage of the qtmain static library (on Windows), i 
wasn't aware of this, so i looked up the Qt documentation and it says:

qtmain is a helper library that enables the developer to write a 
cross-platform main() function on Windows. If you do not use qmake or 
other build tools such as CMake, then you need to link against the 
qtmain library.

Shouldn't qbs be in the build tools list too, eg: "If you do not use 
qmake, qbs or other build tools such as CMake"

Is it worth creating a Qt ticket (and a change request)? Is so, are you 
happy with the above phrasing?


PS: Congrats for the new online Qbs documentation!
