That is a valid point. I don't know what is better, to have 400 lines of 
nearly identical copy-paste code (which need to be updated consistently 
when something changes) or this. I personally find the compact version 
far easier to maintain. But I have not put the package up for review 
yet(*), so if I end up doing so, the issue can be revisited.

(*) The reason being that the static version of the library gives me 
"bad reloc address 0x18 in section 
`.text$_ZN7QStringC1EPKc[__ZN7QStringC1EPKc]'" when trying to link 
against it, whereas the native linux version works just fine, and I have 
no idea what is going on.
