\section3 Non-Static Data Member Initialization
Use non-static data member initialization for trivial initializations, except in public
exported classes.
\section3 Defaulted and Deleted Functions
Consider using \c{=default} and \c{=delete} to control the special functions.
\section3 Override
It is recommended to use the \c{override} keyword when overriding virtual functions. Do not
use virtual on overridden functions.
Make sure that a class uses \c{override} consistently, either for all overridden functions or
for none.
\section3 Nullptr
All compilers support \c{nullptr}, but there is no consensus on using it. If in doubt, ask
the maintainer of the module whether they prefer using \c{nullptr}.
\section3 Range-Based for-Loop
You may use range-based for-loops, but beware of the spurious detachment problem.
If the for-loop only reads the container and it is not obvious whether the
container is const or unshared, use \c{std::cref()} to ensure that the container
is not unnecessarily detached.
\section2 Using QObject
