[Development] Binary incompatible changes to Qt 4.8

I wanted to backport the support for Windows 8 to Qt 4.8, which is
already done for Qt5 in https://codereview.qt-project.org/#change,22940
With this change a symbol is added and therefore binary compatibility is
broken. I know i cannot do that for Qt 4.8, so my question if we should
do this anyhow or how we want to handle this.

The problem I am seeing is that Qt prints for every Qt application this:
Qt: Untested Windows version 6.2 detected!
And some tools are eg parsing the output of qmake and get confused by
this(eg cmake). I would also like if we would handle such things
differently, so that we are just using a qDebug there or similar. So
that these tools are not breaking.

Thank you
