Originally I had intended to map C++ operators to Python special
attributes where sensible. This is how QString generates a __repr__
function. I've since decided that this is too restrictive so I will just
allow any of the __xxx___ attributes to be implemented in handwritten
C++ code. In which case it would make sense to implement __len__ for
Just haven't got around to it yet.
