[PyKDE] QPixmap from a QVariant?

While playing with subclassing QItemDelegate using PyQt4 I stumbled upon a 
little thing that I can't seem to figure out, nor do the docs seem to mention 

In the QItemDelegate subclass and in the paint() method I get the QIcon that 
should be used for the decoration role. That's fine, but the QIcon is in a 
QVariant and the QVariant class has no QVariant.toIcon() method, one should 
in C++ use code like:

if (v.canConvert<Qicon>())
     QPixmap p = v.value<QIcon>(v);

How would one do that with PyQt? Any workarounds if it can't be cast to QIcon?
