+ This command line argument applies to all Qt applications, but might be
+ especially useful in the context of auto-testing. By using the "offscreen"
+ platform plugin (-platform offscreen) it's possible to have tests that use
+ QWidget or QWindow run without showing anything on the screen. Currently
+ the offscreen platform plugin is only fully supported on X11.
