[Development] Make Qt6 JNI API safer to use

I think it would be great to have a result type in the Qt API and use that, instead of C++ exceptions. In theory we could use std::variant, but I think the API inconvenient for the use-case of a result. That wouldn't prevent us from using it in the implementation though.

Ah, sorry, we only have QSystemError. QSystemResult is the class I added and
abandoned in Idaa189413f404cffb1eafffd14cef83d45089eee.
