Deprecate QString::null
It's a Qt 3 compatibility vehicle, and as such inherits the now-alien property to distinguish empty and null strings. Particularly worrisome is the following asymmetry: QString("") == QString::null // false QString("") == QString(QString::null) // true Instead of fixing this behavior, recognize that people might use it as a weird way to call isNull(), albeit one that once was idiomatic, and simply deprecate everything that deals with QString::null. [ChangeLog][QtCore][QString] QString::null is now deprecated. When used to construct a QString, use QString() instead. When used to compare to a QString, replace with QString::isNull().
