If no one objects, we'll do the following:

1. Add it as a submodule to qt5.git, but not as a default part of the build.
2. Include it in the commercial packages, but not the open source 
packages. Open source users who want it will have to build it manually.
3. Submit for inclusion in the open source version of Qt 5.7 as well.
