setGroup is deprecated in favour of using KConfigGroup; setGroup
is too dangerous since it changes the state of KConfig.

I'm wondering if this shouldn't be done why this can't be done by an extra layer
above KConfigGroup... Something like
KConfigGroupWithDefault myGroup( "Chatwindow:FooContact", "Chatwindow" );
Should be easy to implement, e.g. with two KConfigGroups as member,
or by deriving from KConfigGroup and adding fallback-lookup.
