There is one use-case, which is to run regression tests without recompiling 
the unit test. All the tests that don't require "private_tests" were meant to 
be simply run with a new version of Qt.

Maybe we can have an intermediate solution of keeping BC with the previous 
minor release only. If you stop using a function in version 5.N, you can 
remove it in 5.N+1. Would this work?
