Does Protobuf has code to send QStrings and QVariant?

No? Then it doesn't add more value than any other marshalling format out there 
that doesn't support Qt. QDataStream's unique value is that it can send almost 
all Qt types by itself. If we're going to take a protocol that doesn't support 
Qt types yet, the current decision is made: it's CBOR.
