I guess no one has the time to go through it and make it right. I also think
it was passed through a script to update the code related stuff like the
names of the classes that have been already moved to tqt naming convention,
but obviously the underlaying stuff like links is not perfect.
However, if I may share my experience, the documentation is very useful per
se - much of it is in the header files anyway and when you know a bit of Qt
