    QValueList\<T\> defines a template instance to create a list of
    values that all have the class T. Note that QValueList does not
    store pointers to the members of the list; it holds a copy of
    every member. This is why these kinds of classes are called "value
    based"; QPtrList and QDict are "pointer based".

    QValueList contains and manages a collection of objects of type T
    and provides iterators that allow the contained objects to be
    addressed. QValueList owns the contained items. For more relaxed
    ownership semantics, see QPtrCollection and friends which are
    pointer-based containers.

    Some classes cannot be used within a QValueList, for example, all
    classes derived from QObject and thus all classes that implement
    widgets. Only values can be used in a QValueList. To qualify as a
    value the class must provide:
    \list
    \i a copy constructor;
    \i an assignment operator;
    \i a default constructor, i.e. a constructor that does not take any arguments.
    \endlist

    Note that C++ defaults to field-by-field assignment operators and
    copy constructors if no explicit version is supplied. In many
    cases this is sufficient.

    In addition, some compilers (e.g. Sun CC) might require that the
    class provides an equality operator (operator==()).

    QValueList's function naming is consistent with the other Qt
    classes (e.g. count(), isEmpty()). QValueList also provides extra
    functions for compatibility with STL algorithms, such as size()
    and empty(). Programmers already familiar with the STL \c list may
    prefer to use the STL-compatible functions.

    Example:
    \code
    class Employee
    {
    public:
	Employee(): sn(0) {}
	Employee( const QString& forename, const QString& surname, int salary )
	    : fn(forename), sn(surname), sal(salary)
	{}

	QString forename() const { return fn; }
	QString surname() const { return sn; }
	int salary() const { return sal; }
	void setSalary( int salary ) { sal = salary; }

    private:
	QString fn;
	QString sn;
	int sal;
    };

    typedef QValueList<Employee> EmployeeList;
    EmployeeList list;

    list.append( Employee("John", "Doe", 50000) );
    list.append( Employee("Jane", "Williams", 80000) );
    list.append( Employee("Tom", "Jones", 60000) );

    Employee mary( "Mary", "Hawthorne", 90000 );
    list.append( mary );
    mary.setSalary( 100000 );

    EmployeeList::iterator it;
    for ( it = list.begin(); it != list.end(); ++it )
	cout << (*it).surname().latin1() << ", " <<
		(*it).forename().latin1() << " earns " <<
		(*it).salary() << endl;

    // Output:
    // Doe, John earns 50000
    // Williams, Jane earns 80000
    // Hawthorne, Mary earns 90000
    // Jones, Tom earns 60000
    \endcode


    Notice that the latest changes to Mary's salary did not affect the
    value in the list because the list created a copy of Mary's entry.

    There are several ways to find items in the list. The begin() and
    end() functions return iterators to the beginning and end of the
    list. The advantage of getting an iterator is that you can move
    forward or backward from this position by
    incrementing/decrementing the iterator. The iterator returned by
    end() points to the item which is one \e past the last item in the
    container. The past-the-end iterator is still associated with the
    list it belongs to, however it is \e not dereferenceable;
    operator*() will not return a well-defined value. If the list is
    empty(), the iterator returned by begin() will equal the iterator
    returned by end().

    Another way to find an item in the list is by using the \link
    qtl.html#qFind qFind()\endlink algorithm. For example:

    \code
    QValueList<int> list;
    ...
    QValueList<int>::iterator it = qFind( list.begin(), list.end(), 3 );
    if ( it != list.end() )
	// it points to the found item
    \endcode

    It is safe to have multiple iterators a the list at the same
    time. If some member of the list is removed, only iterators
    pointing to the removed member become invalid. Inserting into the
    list does not invalidate any iterator. For convenience, the
    function last() returns a reference to the last item in the list,
    and first() returns a reference to the the first item. If the
    list is empty(), both last() and first() have undefined behavior
    (your application will crash or do unpredictable things). Use
    last() and first() with caution, for example:

    \code
    QValueList<int> list;
    list.append( 1 );
    list.append( 2 );
    list.append( 3 );
    ...
    if ( !list.empty() ) {
	// OK, modify the first item
	int& i = list.first();
	i = 18;
    }
    ...
    QValueList<double> dlist;
    double d = dlist.last(); // undefined
    \endcode

    Because QValueList is value-based there is no need to be careful
    about deleting items in the list. The list holds its own copies
    and will free them if the corresponding member or the list itself
    is deleted. You can force the list to free all of its items with
    clear().

    QValueList is shared implicitly, which means it can be copied in
    constant time, i.e. O(1). If multiple QValueList instances share
    the same data and one needs to modify its contents, this modifying
    instance makes a copy and modifies its private copy; therefore it
    does not affect the other instances; this takes O(n) time. This is
    often called "copy on write". If a QValueList is being used in a
    multi-threaded program, you must protect all access to the list.
    See \l QMutex.

    There are several ways to insert items into the list. The
    prepend() and append() functions insert items at the beginning and
    the end of the list respectively. The insert() function comes in
    several flavors and can be used to add one or more items at
    specific positions within the list.

    Items can also be removed from the list in several ways. There
    are several variants of the remove() function, which removes a
    specific item from the list. The remove() function will find and
    remove items according to a specific item value.

    Lists can also be sorted using the \link qtl.html Qt Template
    Library\endlink. For example with qHeapSort():

    Example:
    \code
    QValueList<int> list;
    list.append( 5 );
    list.append( 8 );
    list.append( 3 );
    list.append( 4 );
    qHeapSort( list );
    \endcode

    \class QValueListIterator qvaluelist.h
    \brief The QValueListIterator class provides an iterator for QValueList.

    \ingroup qtl
    \ingroup tools
    \reentrant

    An iterator is a class for accessing the items of a container
    class: a generalization of the index in an array. A pointer
    into a "const char *" and an index into an "int[]" are both
    iterators, and the general idea is to provide that functionality
    for any data structure.

    The QValueListIterator class is an iterator for QValueList
    instantiations. You can create the appropriate iterator type by
    using the \c iterator typedef provided by QValueList.

    The only way to access the items in a QValueList is to use an
    iterator.

    Example (see QValueList for the complete code):
    \code
    EmployeeList::iterator it;
    for ( it = list.begin(); it != list.end(); ++it )
	cout << (*it).surname().latin1() << ", " <<
		(*it).forename().latin1() << " earns " <<
		(*it).salary() << endl;

    // Output:
    // Doe, John earns 50000
    // Williams, Jane earns 80000
    // Hawthorne, Mary earns 90000
    // Jones, Tom earns 60000
    \endcode

    QValueList is highly optimized for performance and memory usage.
    This means that you must be careful: QValueList does not know
    about all its iterators and the iterators don't know to which list
    they belong. This makes things very fast, but if you're not
    careful, you can get spectacular bugs. Always make sure iterators
    are valid before dereferencing them or using them as parameters to
    generic algorithms in the STL or the \link qtl.html QTL\endlink.

    Using an invalid iterator is undefined (your application will
    probably crash). Many Qt functions return const value lists; to
    iterate over these you should make a copy and iterate over the
    copy.

    For every Iterator there is a ConstIterator. When accessing a
    QValueList in a const environment or if the reference or pointer
    to the list is itself const, then you must use the ConstIterator.
    Its semantics are the same as the Iterator, but it only returns
    const references.

    \class QValueListConstIterator qvaluelist.h
    \brief The QValueListConstIterator class provides a const iterator
    for QValueList.

    \ingroup qtl
    \ingroup tools
    \reentrant

    In contrast to QValueListIterator, this class is used to iterate
    over a const list. It does not allow modification of the values of
    the list since that would break const semantics.

    You can create the appropriate const iterator type by using the \c
    const_iterator typedef provided by QValueList.

    For more information on QValueList iterators, see
    QValueListIterator.

  Pointer operator. Returns a pointer to the current iterator item.
  The great advantage of this operator is that you can treat the
  iterator like a pointer.

    \enum QValueList::Iterator

    This iterator is an instantiation of QValueListIterator for the
    same type as this QValueList. In other words, if you instantiate
    QValueList<int>, Iterator is a QValueListIterator<int>. Several
    member function use it, such as QValueList::begin(), which returns
    an iterator pointing to the first item in the list.

    Functionally, this is almost the same as ConstIterator. The only
    difference is that you cannot use ConstIterator for non-const
    operations, and that the compiler can often generate better code
    if you use ConstIterator.
