Something seems to be off here: is g(Q) supposed to be the upper index
limit twice with no summand term f(n,q)?

If you are not aware of it, have a look at "Integration and modern
analysis" by Benedetto and Czaja, page 451 (Moore-Smith theorem). It
should be available online via Google books.

The interchange condition there includes uniformity, though, so it may
be old news to you.
