Please, offer this as an option.

GCC won't give problems. With Microsoft compiler, you could probably go
with precompiled Qt headers. In fact, the 'all in one cpp' trick only does
that: parse redundant headers only one time. I've not a Windows machine
handy, and even then, I haven't a Microsoft compiler :-). I don't know
about others (Borland, etc). Maybe I could try with Intel's compiler (I
think I have copy of that here in my machine).
