[Interest] opposite of QString::toEscapedHtml()

Is there a function, I searched and could not find anything that returns the human readable version of the string?


QString origString = .....;
decodeHtml( origString.toEscapedHtml() ) == origString;


The biggest hack of all hacks I could find is the following

QTextDocument doc;
doc.setHtml( origString );
QString plaintext = doc.toPlainText();

Which just seems like a little bit of overkill
