I think it seems a good idea to be able to pass a perlqt Qt::Date, or perl 
string etc and have them automatically converted to an appropriate C++ 
QVariant type. On the other hand, I not so sure about going the other way - 
maybe you would want an actual PerlQt Qt::Variant or a list of Qt::Variants 
returned instead of them being converted to the underlying type of the C++ 
QVariant in perl.

In addition to the patch, you need entries like this in the Qt_handlers array 
so the marshallers get called:

    { "QVariant", marshall_QVariant },
    { "QVariant&", marshall_QVariant },
    { "QVariant*", marshall_QVariant },

    { "QValueList<QVariant>", marshall_QValueListQVariant },
    { "QValueList<QVariant>&", marshall_QValueListQVariant },
