Initializion with Curly Brackets

Curly brackets for initialization got quite powerful. To not invent a
different style we should use the some style like for rounded brackets.

\section3 Initialization with Curly Brackets
If you use initialization with curly brackets, follow the same rules as with
round brackets. For example:
class Values // the following code is quite useful for test fixtures
float floatValue = 4; // prefer that for simple types
QVector<int> values = {1, 2, 3, 4, integerValue}; // prefer that syntax for initializer lists
SomeValues someValues{"One", 2, 3.4}; // not an initializer_list
SomeValues &someValuesReference = someValues;
ComplexType complexType{values, otherValues} // constructor call
object.setEntry({"SectionA", value, doubleValue}); // calls a constructor
object.setEntry({}); // calls default constructor
But be careful not to overuse it, to not obfuscate your code.
\section3 Non-Static Data Member Initialization
Use non-static data member initialization for trivial initializations, except in public
