      Description

      QFile::open() with WriteOnly will create the file if it doesn't exist, but it won't create parent directories. QDir::mkpath() only works with directories.

      For example, it would be nice to be able to do this:

      QFile file("/tmp/this/will/be/created.txt");
      if (!file.createAndOpen(QIODevice::WriteOnly))
          // ...
      

      Or maybe add an overload of open that takes an enum to control the directory-creating behaviour:

      enum CreationPolicy {
          DoNotCreate,
          CreateFile,
          CreateParentDirectoriesAndFile
      }
