 After converting a large number of files to Qt4, I don't think we need to
 introduce a new thread safe string class anymore. Assignments in Qt4 are
 really atomic and the very unsafe ascii()/utf8()/latin1()/local8Bit()
 functions were causing most of the remaining segfaults (and are now
 removed from the class). The remaining bugs are specific to certain
 classes used by multiple threads using QStrings without a mutex protecting
 them (ChannelBase for instance). Those errors should be addressed on a
 case by case basis as those classes will probably unsafely use any number
 of other variables, not just strings.
