I actually think it's still to specfic. Upgrading from Qt 5.0 to 5.1
would need touching all source files. So

   import QtQml from TheQtIUse
   import QtQuick from TheQtIUse

and some one-liner somewhere that relates "TheQtIUse" with "Qt 5.0",
perhaps even through the build system should be even better.
