Unless I'm mistaken MSVC encodes the return type into the binary
interface (see thiago's recent blog). Which in turn means changing the
return type of a function is a BC change and hence cannot be done before
KDE5. So basically you're stuck with either keeping the code you have or
introduce a new "cleanPathAndReturn" function that returns a KUrl
