Qt Contributors Summit is over
Even held my own little session about my griefs with QObject life-cycle. We found some few chances for improvement, but we also sadly had to conclude that proper two-phase construction and destruction isn't possible in C++, unless you forbid stack allocation and usage of the delete operator. Actually had my little pervert moment of pleasure when realising that Thiago seems a bit jealous for the freedom GObject gets from plain C.
Still wondering a bit if there's really no way to implement proper two-phase destruction in C++. Must we really bribe the C++ standard committee to enhance the specification?
