Store the is-a QObject fact with the metatype declaration.
This is a source incompatible change for Q_DECLARE_METATYPE(T*), which now requires T to be fully defined. The consequences of this are: * Forward declared types can no longer be declared as a metatype. (though this is a very uncommon thing to do). There is a trivial workaround where necessary.
