And if I want to run the same code with Qt 5 and Qt 6? I don't want to
modernize it,
since that may change or break what it does on Qt 5, and I also don't
want to modernize code
as part of my build in a dynamic fashion, because that costs time and can cause
version control problems. If we want Qt to be a library that caters to
various different
user scenarios, we should first stop assuming that one-way
modernization tools are
a realistic solution to compatibility problems.
