Okay, I've checked this change in SVN.

But I see some reasons why you shouldn't do it like this:
1. efficiency - for single-part geometries this would mean one more
copy of geometry (+ conversion from QList to python list)
2. compatibility - ordinary users of qgis v1.0 won't have
3. destruction of geometries - I can't seem to find a way how to
convince SIP to transfer ownership of new geometries in the list to
python. So, while it works, there are leaked geometries after every
