  As far I know the plan was to have a full Qt5 build and test cycle per day. 
So no, brokenness would be detected much earlier. Btw. the same argumentation 
could be used for every other module. In my opinion it is fine to break 
intermodule dependencies from time to time, assuming that we can detect and 
recover quickly.
