Bug report #17376

QgsSettings::beginGroup() is superior to QgsSettings::Section

Description

Just a simple example:

QgsSettings settings;
settings.begingGroup( "my_group" );
settings.setValue( "my_key", 7, QgsSettings::Section::App )

results with:


[my_group]
app/key=7

Shouldn't beginGroup() optionally accept QgsSettings::Section? Like that:


void beginGroup( const QString &prefix, const QgsSettings::Section section = QgsSettings::Section::NoSection );

I marked it as a bug, as it causes rather unexpected results and makes beginGroup() more or less useless.
