I understand the need to provide to the QML developer stuff like i18n
and a way to look up the location of icons, but I'm less sure having
an actual QIcon/KIcon object. We're going to want to make use of Qt
Components right? So until thats sorted out and we're able to
"sub-class" (re-implement? javascript is weird) the Qt Components to
add features like naming icons by name, wouldn't it make sense to just
provide a method to query for resources like icons? And then let the
QML developer use whatever the standard method is for displaying that
