I had seen that, but I wasn't sure if it would always return the second part 
for the country code, but that sounds promising if you do get it.  Looking at 
the QLocale code it looks like it always does except for C or AnyCountry.

There is also a 'helper' method in qlocale.cpp for:
  static QString countryToCode(QLocale::Country country)
but I'm not sure we can use that?
