qt cannot change their defaults, as it would change their API. boost can
address the default *without* breaking the API.

the headache is not for Qt devs, they don't use boost. the headache is
for their users. just like, it is not your headache or joaquin's, but
the headache of their users.

lets please try not to be dogmatic about it, that won't lead anywere.
instead we should to work towards a robust solution, which solves
real-world problems.
