That was surely a pessimistic view.  There's nothing stopping anyone from fixing problems or adding features one-by-one (except for the matter of getting around to it ;-) and some of the suggestions don't sound very hard to implement either.  It's also a good idea to keep writing bugs/suggestions, or update them when they were written against older Qt versions but still apply to the current one.
