As I said, it's possible to do it before, if you really need to. Note: *need*
to, not *want* to. As in "this is utterly broken and is impeding progress /
has too much maintenance load".
We do not have support in the buildsystem for creating libQt5SerialPort.so.6.
We could have libQt6SerialPort.so.6 but I really don't want that. The "5"
there is about Qt 5, not about serial port -- it would have to be elsewhere.
You could make libQt5SerialPort2.so.5.
But since our buildsystem is not backwards compatible, we'll need to keep
releasing the old version too -- or stop breaking the buildsystem.

Undeprecating API is fine.
