or the alternative of deprecating search paths. Anyone have an opinion here?

If this is about QDir::addSearchPath read on:

We use it for embedded projects to easily change asset paths between 
developer and target environment. I found it always useful to abstract 
away my own asset locations. Maybe we could also use QStandardPaths but 
only if we could add own path locations (which then would not be 
standard anymore).
