Qt 5 = Qt Essentials + Qt Addons

Qt Essentials = QtCore, QtNetwork, QtGui, QtWebKit, QtDeclarative/Qt Quick
	plus QtWidgets on desktop

Technically speaking, in order to build those you're going to need some other 
dependencies (QtSvg, QtXmlPatterns, V8), but they don't constitute part of the 
required Essentials API, just as non-Qt dependencies don't either. It also 
specifically excludes (for the moment) some libs inside qtbase.git that should 
be moved out, like QtDBus, QtXml and QtSql.

Everything else is part of the Addons, like QtSvg, QtXmlPatterns, 
QtMultimediaKit and all other new addons to be created by the community or 
contributed from KDE or other sources.
