[Qbs] How do I use Parameter property in a module itself?

Do you actually want to achieve this?

    Module {
        property bool useFeature: false

        Probes.BinaryProbe {
            condition: useFeature

    Product {
        Depends { name: "mymodule"; }
        mymodule.useFeature: true

The Parameter item, as far as I understand it, makes only sense if you have
- 2 products A and B
- B depends on A and on mymodule
- in the context of B you want to control, how a module "mymodule"
  handles A

You wouldn't use it to just parameterize "mymodule", because that can be
achieved with plain properties.

The probably best explanation so far of the Parameter item can be found in
the following blog post:
https://blog.qt.io/blog/2017/09/05/qbs-1-9-released/ I realize that the
reference documentation of the Parameter item is insufficient and the
example in the module documentation could be more sensible.
