In general I don't like to bring crashes onto users; but in this case I fail
to see how application code could use the right types most of the times
and incompatible types now and then; it would have to be pretty generic
code to end up doing that.... So IMHO the Q_ASSERT is fine, to catch such
an unlikely programming error early. Adding the warning in addition can't hurt,
for the release case :)
