I could also restate the problem entirely. It would really be appreciated if Qt
supplied an AppDelegate that I can hook into and supply handlers for without
having to write Obj-C. That would satisfy my (and I think others' wishes) It
would also tie into my long-running gripe about Qt's incomplete platform
integration on Mobile. If such an AppDelegate plugin approach were developed,
it should also be able to plug into Android well. (The plugin*, not the
AppDelegate. Android would need it's own version of app delegate)
*Not strictly a QPlugin.
