I'm a not at all interested in Qt (4 or 5) components, so honestly I'm all
inclined to just disable Qt4 and stay like this. I'm not against enabling Qt5
components if you need them, but I won't really spend much time on this.
You're welcome to jump in on this part though.

Yeah, I'll take a look. I'll first push stuff to experimental I guess.
