Because of the way QByteArray is used, it is hard to convert to a byte[] and 
back again. For instance when you give a QByteArray to a QDataStream, write a 
few things and the underlying QByteArray gets written to - it would be hard 
to retrieve a byte[] with the updated value in that situation. I originally 
had it being marshalled to a ruby string in QtRuby, but changed it to have 
ruby Qt::ByteArray class to fix problems like the one I describe above.
