That'd be hard, since there's no Qt 4.9 planned, but a simple macro
that won't break stuff can be made on KDE api to define Q_NULLPTR (
implications? ) when it's doesn't exists.
Thiago, on C++ 0 and (void*) 0 are the same thing? I know that on C
they aren't, and I didn't found the information easily on the web.
