Actually it's easier than that:

On an opened QFile you can use QFile::handle() to return the file descriptor 
(i.e. what is passed to write(2)).  Using the file descriptior you can use the 
C stdio fdopen() function to return a FILE* tied to that file descriptor.

This way you can still use stdio functions on a file managed by QFile.

All that this would really buy you is guaranteeing that the file gets closed, 
which may not be worth the overhead however if you're simply going to be 
passing the FILE* to libjpeg.
