BTW: there is light at the end of the tunnel: looks like Qt 3.1 comes with
a class based EventLoop implementation this fall...



The event loop has been moved to the QEventLoop class, making it easier to 
integrate other toolkits with Qt. 

New functions: 

QEventLoop *eventLoop() const 
void setEventLoop( QEventLoop * ) 
QString sessionKey() const
