Nope - I put spaces between names and parens in connect calls all the time and 
it works fine.

It's the 'index' identifier that's causing the problem as far as I can tell, 
as you noted below. It's not part of the C++ signature for the method/signal.

Also, const, and & are part of the C++ signature, which is what SIGNAL needs 
to pass to make the connection. Those are correct.
