The problem here is based on this discussion:
I can make them private or mask them with an '#if MAKE_KDEUI_LIB' to
avoid caling them from outside the lib. But with gcc you can call them
too (and you'll get a linker error that gcc can't auto-create the
operator) because the operator comes from QList<T>.
