[Development] Override toString() method for c++ QObject types in QML

That's fine. I was curious if this was possible or not in the current state
of QML2.

I do not yet have critical need for it but it could also be useful for
overriding the valueOf prototype. I will just use another method to provide
debug information about a QObject type.

Thanks for the quick answer,
