Greetings all,

I've just read the new features for the upcoming Qt 5.4, here:

...and I noticed this:
"Deprecated features: Qt Gui: The QtOpenGL module, that is, the QGL classes
  are deprecated since QGLWidget has a suitable replacement now."

Will the new QOpenGLWidget class be usable like the old QGLWidget, notably
as a background for a QGraphicsView? allowing to draw QGraphicsItem, even
widgets, on top of an OpenGL scene...
