IMHO this is exactly why it's a mistake to package the full SDK in one
big blob. At least on Windows, on Linux I tend to use system packages
when I can.
It would be really nice if (again, this probably only makes sense on
Windows) I we could have a "download other Qt version" button in QtC. A
bit like the "get new stuff" buttons you see in more and more places.
