Tonight's snapshot will make sure that all Python lists and dicts will be 
treated as Python objects by QVariant and retrievable with toPyObject().

I haven't gone as far as I had originally proposed (applying /Constrained/ 
throughout) as I think it will break too many things - particularly 
QVariant("am I a QString or a Python object?")
