It'd propose to have an ubuntu package that downloads the latest
stable release of the Qt SDK bundle and install it to a user path
(e.g. I think the preferred way to work with Qt these days, as I learn
from other project like NodeJS . django and others, is not through sys
wide installations.) In any event that is what I always do and it
works best for multiple versions of Qt and the binaries , and I have a
bash script to switch envs. Perhaps we could create something like
Python's virtualenv for Qt?

You mean, part of the Qt SDK installation or plain Qt from source installation?
