Ah yes, QDeclarativeWebView uses WebKit1, much easier to change the QNAM 
there. Fun fact: In KMail we also use QWebPage::setQNAM(), probably for the 
exact same usecase as you have in Trojitá :)

With WebKit2, there is no such easy way, and instead of one QNAM per page, 
there is only one global QNAM, which even lives in another process. No free
