Could it be made optional?

Just because it's not used by Qt internally doesn't IMHO make it a 
candidate for removal.

I've used Qt for years and the whole issue of program termination, fault 
handling and reporting, bug report generation etc. seem to be missing 
from the documentation - or maybe it's called something else.

This is from someone who doesn't know how to send qdebug messages to the 
console or if they're flushed when a Qt program is killed, so please 
excuse my ignorance in advance.
