No it's not a typo. At the moment str isn't implemented and falls back
to repr. One of the suggestions I made was to implement str and have
both null and empty QStrings return an empty Python string, and to have
repr return (for a null QString) soemthing like "<null QString at
Would this be the best compromise, consistent with the rest of Python?
