Who are not infallible.

I still call a mistake to use Qt 4.8 for ANY new project in 2018. Whether KDAB 
or ICS or TQtC actually makes money off other people's mistakes is totally 
orthogonal. Just don't be jack^*&*es and do advise your customers to PLEASE 
pretty please with a cherry on top consider upgrading to software that is 
still receiving security fixes. 

Note this is different from supporting an existing project that happens to 
still be using Qt 4.8, but the fact that Oleg is wondering if he's the first 
to try the combination indicates this is indeed a new project.
