I agree that a workaround on our side may seem an easy solution. But in
the long term it is a never ending headache. We have a whole winapi
submodule for similar reason, and I see Apple macros cause pain here and
there from time to time. People just need to learn to stop using such
generic macros - the hard way, if needed. I wonder if the problem has
been reported to Qt devs and what was the response.
