[Development] New module for OPC UA

we as basysKom have developed a Qt API for OPC UA which we would like
to contribute to the Qt project.

OPC UA is a communication protocol developed for industrial
machine to machine communication. The vision of OPC UA is to have
one uniform, vendor-independent communication protocol for all
industrial communication (from machine controllers up to enterprise
level systems).

Our API is a Qt wrapper for existing OPC UA stacks. We have a plugin 
mechanism in place so different OPC UA stacks can be used through a
common interface. We have currently implemented an HMI focused sub-set
of the client-side.

Our initial contribution would include a plugin for the open source
FreeOPCUA stack. We also have implementations for two more (commercial)
OPC UA stacks available which we might contribute at a later point
(depending on licence issues).

We have reviewed the list of existing modules and did not find a
module with related functionality. Therefore we would like to request
a new module. Our preferred repo would be "qt/qtopcua".

Kind Regards,
