Do you mean supporting the output from the draw9patch tool? I think it 
also makes sense for Qt Creator to have a similar tool that allows 
designing the nine-patch margins visually.

We are, however, considering the idea of having a separate module 
(Qt5AndroidHelpers or something) which contains support for 
Android-specific concepts. Having a AndroidBorderImage or something like 
that in there, which accepts the output from draw9patch and which simply 
instantiates a BorderImage with the correct margins might be a good idea.
