That's not the consensus.

People panicked when they read Tuukka's blog saying "considered for removal in 
the future releases of Qt" without understanding what he actually meant.

Tuukka was talking about modules. Removing modules means they no longer get 
compiled as part of the convenience binaries and as part of the convenience 
"qt-everywhere" tarball. If you need them, compile the release.
