What about:

PersistentSettings {
     id: settings
     propertyMap: {
         "width": "application.width",
         "height": "application.height",
         "buttonOrder": "system.buttonOrder"

And have the PersistentSettings class create the "width", "height", 
"buttonOrder" properties dynamically. It doesn't need to know the type, 
because they are just QVariant (if the backend is implemented via 
QSettings, this all should be fairly easy to implement).
