That's fine. It's still better (lower maintenance) than having 
home-grown / incompatible generators floating around, IMO.

Yeah, we would start from revision 7 in Qt5, but remove codepaths for 
revisions < 7 (Qt4 meta-objects). Then if we need to bump the revision 
to 8 in Qt 5.x, we would have to keep revision 7 working, of course.
