[vtk-developers] Converting vtkUnicodeString to QString

What is the correct way to convert a vtkUnicodeString to QString? I can do
QString qs = QString::fromUtf8(str.utf8_str());

This also seems to work

QString qs = QString::fromUtf16(&str.utf16_str()[0]);

Are both equally valid, since the internal storage of vtkUnicodeString is
UTF8 and for QString it is UTF16, so one conversion must take place either

Why does utf8_str() return a char* but utf16_str() return a vector?
