Will fix.

This is used (only) from FacebookGetJob, assumingly for querying multiple
items, where just the ids are specified and no path is needed. I'll see
what can be done about this.

Will check.

This is for the parsing purposes - the library uses QJson parser/mapper,
which automagically maps the received json data to qobjects, otherwise
there would have to be manual parsing everywhere (and the facebook jsons
are huge), which means more code, more error possibilities, more
maintaining requirement and worse readability (compared to two lines QJson
mapper). So I'd like to leave this one as is.

Good point, will add those into namespace.
