Departure from String Signal/Slots

One major change that Qt5 has brought is template based signal/slots. Gone are the days of run-time only checks of signals.

Gtkmm has been doing that since 1999 with some nice template tricks via libsigc++.

Qt has stayed away from it due to the compilers they had to support.

Now with C++11 support we can finally have them in Qt as well.
