It seems at the moment  Debian would be waiting for the tool to
arrive, which means I'd also drop the renaming/alternatives patches
from Qt5. I've been looking at Qt5 packaging with the idea of having
something to test for us and potentially helping Debian by
pre-checking how Qt5 looks from packaging point of view. Fathi started
initial packaging around beta1 time for a couple of modules, on which
my (and Zoltan's) packaging is based.
