In my opinion the Qt SDK currently is still "Nokia Qt SDK" (because of all
the Nokia toolchains and not including the Android toolchain by default,
and the docs are on doc.qt.nokia.com, not the DevNet).
I think we should make the Qt 5 SDK a proper qt-project.org SDK, so either
not including any toolchain and having packages for the toolchains, or
including the Android/iOS/whatever toolchain in the SDK directly

For qdoc we happen to have already done this, since the changes between
4.x and 5 are so big that we changed from qdoc3 to just qdoc (we can
easily make it qdoc5).
