KConfig -> deleteGroup deletes keys only

hi all..

another issue with KConfig's nested groups just popped up today on me: 
deleteGroup only seems to clear the key/value pairs in the group, but none of 
the sub-groups. so if you have:



and call deleteGroup() on a KConfigGroup representing Foo, you will end up 
with this in the config file:


which then causes [Foo] to appear as a group in, for instance, groupList(). 
unexpected given we just called deleteGroup().

is there a reason why deleteGroup() doesn't delete all subgroups as well? 
should it? (before i spend time coming up with a patch ;)
