Replying to myself :)

After looking at the Qt code that is what canConvert/convert do. So here is 
another try, it also checks the items in a QVariantList. If you uncomment the 
writeEntry in kconfigtest.cpp it will crash, because there is no conversion 
from QPoint or QSize to QString through QVariant. Which leads me to the next 
question, should I cause an assertion failure or just issue a debug/warning 
message? I'm not sure a crash is the best policy here.
