Just replying to this point: it's another API that used to accept an 
encoding in Qt 5 (setIniCodec) and did not necessarily use UTF-8 there. 
Not only we dropped that support, but we also broke backwards 
compatibility -- people requiring Qt 5/6 compatibility for INI files 
have to force UTF-8 encoding (in Qt 5). AFAIK, the whole reason for this 
is along the same lines of this broader topic.
