1) std::string is broken with GCC. The devs had to break binary compatibility
between C++98 and C++11. Therefore, you should either:
a) REQUIRE C++11 and require a reasonably recent GCC (4.6 and up)
b) stop using std::string
I highly suggest you choose (a).
Also note that Qt chose (b), so we're not affected by this issue.
2) there's nothing wrong with the conversion between QString and std::string
