I think, you can have simple applications built on top of, as for the
time being. Unfortunately, it is not yet a mature component set that
would replace the Qt4 widgets thoroughly.

I have tried on Linux, Mac and Windows in my recent project. The
problem is that certain basic things do not work well, like a
popup-menu in full screen mode, if you do not use a declarative engine
like the qmldesktopviewer. I had to inject something, like
"view.setResizeMode(QDeclarativeView::SizeRootObjectToView);". There
are such things, but I agree about that, it is not totally unusable.
Many things are already solved, and they need further tunings.

+1, I am all for this as well. Hope, it is getting mature as soon as
possible. :)

That is unfortunately not so pleasant for the moment:

First, I did not know where to report such bugs since I was looking
for a playground component with this subcomponent.
Second, then I realized, it is there with a different approach than a
container Playground component.

Filing bugs for Playground projects is suboptimal. Apparently, no Jira
maintainers take care of that issue. :(
