[PyQt] Missing QIODevice::read overloads

I noticed the following QIODevice overloads are missing in PyQt:
qint64 QIODevice::read(char * data, qint64 maxSize)
qint64 QIODevice::readLine(char * data, qint64 maxSize)
only the following are available:
QByteArray QIODevice::read(qint64 maxSize)
QByteArray QIODevice::readLine(qint64 maxSize = 0)
The issue with those is that it's impossible to check for errors:
This function has no way of reporting errors; returning an empty
QByteArray can mean either that no data was currently available
for reading, or that an error occurred.
The best workaround I found so far is to check if
QIODevice::errorString is "Unknown error", but that's a hack...
Maybe PyQt should provide the two other forms as well, when passing a
mutable byte object (QByteArray/bytearray?) as first parameter?
