Sounds like overkill. If I can make [QK]ExtProcess binary compatible with the 
'normal' classes it would be nice, but it's not a goal as it's almost 
certainly not even possible. The goal is source compatibility, and possibly 
subclassing QIODevice, but subclassing anything below the IO device seems 
like a lot of work with little benefit to me.
