Ah, ok. It was just a bit confusing at first to see warning on both, but no
error on the jobtracker interface, but after checking the code its obvious
thats not needed as the error-support in ui-delegate is using the finished
signal, which the tracker has direct access to.

If you don't mind I'll add a small sentence to both class api dox to
describe the purpose of each of them. At least to me the classnames didn't
reveal that completely by themselves :)


Try to have as good a life as you can under the circumstances.
