We do have a single one that does all the magic: QString. A Qt user can 
ignore all others.

The difference between Qt and Java or C# is that we also offer 
non-allocating alternatives for users who care. And if they care, they 
need to learn them.

For the case that triggered this discussion, the androiddeployqt 
executable, I wouldn't bother with optimizations and just use what's 
more readable, even raw strings.
