It actually is documented in 5.4, as pointed out by Ziller. Maybe it's
too late to change but IMHO it would be better if it were at least the
same pattern as QFileSelector, say :/images/icon.png and
Then there is just one path encoding trick to remember.

Just my 2c, I'm happy with having the feature either way.
