I wanted to write the same, but in case of the libraries, it makes sense 
to have a common look, at least for the interfaces, and that includes 
- the d pointer classes are private or not (I support non-private ones)
- the slots are prefixed with slot or not. I like the prefixed version, 
but the fact that Qt does not use it, can be an argument.
