I never knew there was a global "make test" for KDE, meaning I never 
knew my code would break something larger. I expected only developers 
working on the library (read: myself alone) to actually go into 
libqt-addon/tests and perform checks -- meaning an extra MOC-generation 
step wouldn't harm.

Now, is there a way to autogenerate the .moc file from the .cpp? If not, 
I'll have to split the program in two.

Actually, I should just turn off the test programs, since they don't do 
what they are supposed to do.
