Not currently. But the code is usually a small variation of the regular
Windows code and I think we should keep it around for now.

What we can remove is everything that's related to the windowing system,
as that has to go through Lighthouse in the future. Ie. we keep stuff that
should be in Q_OS_WINCE and remove stuff that's inside Q_WS_WINCE. But
please keep in mind that we haven't been very good in keeping the usage of
these defines consistent. So something inside Q_WS_WIN(CE) might actually
be Q_OS_* code :)
