14 * QObject Reference Counts Terminology
15 * ------------------------------------
16 *
17 * - Returning references: A function that returns an object may
18 * return it as either a weak or a strong reference. If the reference
19 * is strong, you are responsible for calling QDECREF() on the reference
20 * when you are done.
21 *
22 * If the reference is weak, the owner of the reference may free it at
23 * any time in the future. Before storing the reference anywhere, you
24 * should call QINCREF() to make the reference strong.
25 *
26 * - Transferring ownership: when you transfer ownership of a reference
27 * by calling a function, you are no longer responsible for calling
28 * QDECREF() when the reference is no longer needed. In other words,
29 * when the function returns you must behave as if the reference to the
30 * passed object was weak.
