Thanks for keeping me in the loop.

RazorQt it's Qt4 only, the project has merged along with LXDE as LXQt
(hopefully LXQt is or will be Qt5-ready).

All components (incl. razorqt-lightdm-greeter) are part of the same
source package.  So all of it will get removed at the same time, along
with Qt4 or before.
