Also, is it not time to decide which platform are we going to stop supporting 
in Qt 5.6?

For example, if we were to decide to start using some of the C++11, we should 
drop MSVC 2008 which would allow us to already use things like auto and 
We could also drop gcc 4.4 which would let us lambda function.
