Hiding a method from a base class is not possible anyway as you can still cast 
down and then call the method. It kind of works for value based classes since 
those are normally not casted down, but for all pointer-based (i.e. QObject) 
classes I believe you should not hide a method and get a warning if you do 
(also for non-virtual functions).
