Well, it's working for the moment, so the question is where the person
comes from that is willing to keep it alive. Since we'll keep BC after
5.0, the work would mainly be to adjust to changes in private headers and

But there is a valid question here about the expected lifetime of the
module. When do we expect that the majority of users has moved over to Qt
