On the topic of this new class, I'd like to suggest a name different from 

We have had a global function qVersion() for a long time and I'm worried that 
a class name QVersion (as it appears in code completions, etc.) might mislead 
users to thinking that it is related to the version of Qt, which it isn't.

I suggest a name that is more centric towards the _function_ of the class, 
comparison of different software versions.
