Uh... you're right. It exists for QMap too.

I loaded the QList documentation, which doesn't have it. But it also 
doesn't need it because QList is based on indexes. (Hence find is 
actually "indexOf")

This code is quite clearly a direct port from Qt3, where it really didn't 
exist: http://doc.trolltech.com/3.3/qmap.html.
