I'd like to add here that it is also probably rather hard to store any
QObject derived object. For instance you have to store this object, all
it's children and their children, eventually all other objects that this
QObject has a connection to and maybe even more. Or you could say that
you will not store any of there, but then storing a QObject doesn't make
much sense anymore...


Your lucky number has been disconnected.
