Isn't this just breaking the function, and marking it as deprecated an excuse 
for breaking it with less guilt?

People might rely on the function in proprietary applications in ways that are 
impossible to predict.

Making the Qt builds reproducible should still be possible by faking the date 
of the build, isn't it?
