No, the problem is that there's no way to specify the right moc. Qt imposes that it matches the filename (so with the _qtb suffix), but then it won't include anything defined in the headerfile if the header doesn't also have the _qtb suffix. (Is that clear? =) )

I've gone for a different approach, as you've seen, similar to what Qt do themselves. I could indeed have moved the web* specific code to its own dedicated file too - I'm not even sure that would not have been less work in the end :)
