make sense to me :)

I know at least one other user (the KDAB training presentation software) that 
could benefit from such a QML integration.

Implementation looks sane, API-wise we probably also want to allow selecting 
the theme (to support dark color schemes). It might also worth either making 
lifetime management of Repository explicit, or keep it around indefinitely, as 
creating that is fairly expensive.
