Then that's their problem, not qt-projects.

This is only one platform that this effects, and only under certain 

We didn't need to rename commands going from qt2 ->qt3, nor from qt3 ->qt4.
Personally I don't think there is a problem. With the name change comes 
heaps of problems on the other platforms. Less problems wins.

Personally I think it's a big waste of time, and too big of change to be 
done now. This feature should have to wait until qt 6.

First and foremost, where's the bug reports from linux distros that need 
this change, or is the problem made up?
