I am not sorry to sound blunt here, but calling

     a["b"] = "c"

"equally readable" to

     a[QStringLiteral("b")] = QStringLiteral("c")

requires a kind of proficiency that's rare to find in real life.

I don't think it makes sense to move Qt into a direction that reduces
its potential audience to a handful people worldwide.
