Yes. I do plan on making #error message include information on how you can get 
it back, but that there's no guarantee that Qt will compile due to other 

For example, we all know that Qt 5.0 and 5.1 do not compile under MSVC 2013 
due to their further C++11 standardisation (which includes C99 functions that 
weren't there before). So we're on the fortunate side for MSVC 2013.
