I realize this is a matter of preference, but I'd suggest using qbin()
and qhex() rather than the underscore: I think it makes more sense for
stuff that can be imported into the global namespace (as opposed to
stuff as exec_() that can only be attached to an object).

If you see in the middle of a program hex_(foo), you may wonder where
that came from, whereas qhex(foo) is going to be rather obvious.

Of course, do what you think it's best. :-)
