The Python3 way to do it is...
s = str(QByteArray, encoding='ascii')
...or whatever encoding is used.
It would be possible to change things so that...
s = str(QByteArray)
...automatically uses the default encoding. However that would then make it
inconsistent with the behaviour of...
s = str(bytes)
...and I'm not sure that that is a good idea.
