... in which case the effort is not minimal. :)

So look beyond the one-dollar-apps. Is it a common thing to do to have hybrid 
QML/C++ applications? (The answer is yes).

I don't know how this problem will be resolved. I don't like the idea of 
keeping QtCore internals static and not making performance gains in Qt5.x 
because qtquick1 uses the old stuff. 

It's quite similar to the current qmetaobject revisions situation where now 
qtactiveqt is being updated. QtQuick1 would have to be maintained, but 
presumably no one is stepping up to do that.
