Does "deprecating OpenGL module" mean "deprecating QGLWidget"? Personnaly
I just hope not, unless there's a replacement. I really need to embed a
QGLWidget (or more than one) in a GUI with "standard" widgets all around,
and QWindow seems more for top-level GL display. Moreover OpenGL/ES is way
too limited for my needs.

Also I'm a bit worried when reading documentation like doc/qtgui/qtgui-index.html
or doc/qtgui/painting-3d.html, seeing they don't even mention QGLWidget...
But maybe there's a way to "embed" an OpenGL QWindow (or at least QSurface)
in a widget?

Unrelated side note: when reading the documentation about a class, e.g. QWidget,
there's no link to "go up" or at least go back to the full class list. This is
for the "offline" doc, the online doc http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5.0/qtwidgets/qwidget.html
has all the needed navigation links in a right-side pane. This pane would be
great to have also in the offline doc.
