i don't want to get into a toolkit war, but gtkmm has been using
SigC++ since its inception, and although it was loosely inspired by
the Qt signal/slot system, it is widely acknowledged as superior to it
in almost every way. it even inspired the boost classes for
signals+slots, except that they forked it (so to speak) too early -
sigc++2 is just 100% pure C++ software engineering joy. sigc++ is
entirely independent of any graphical toolkit - you can use it
non-graphical applications as well.

and using moc ... sigc++ doesn't require any preprocessor.
