just in case you did not notice this by now. There is a terrible nameclash
between Trolltechs Qt library and the signals library.

Trolltech introduced the new keyword "signals" for there sig/slot
implementation. So far so bad.

The problem is there is no keyword "signals" in C++, so what to do?
Easy, first parse the code by a prepreprocessor called moc, then use the cpp
to remove the non-c++ keyword. How?, just #define signals protected.

Can you see what happens next ?

Yes I am going to ask TT to fix this. No I don't think they are going to do it
and anyway it will take time.

Any idea how to work around this problem?
