Big value, well... as you mentioned, it's common. I've needed to write
code to do entity decoding in the past, I'm sure a lot of others have.
This was just yet another place where it cropped up. If you don't want
it in QString, I can agree with that, I don't feel strongly about the
issue - I just thought it may be nice to have a centralised version of
this, like we do with encoding, so that it's not something that needs
to be written multiple times.
Thanks for your feedback,
