You are right, but what is misleading I think is that some visible
features are for Qt(designer, QML...), then I'm not sure that it is
possible to build anything without qmake(-> without any kit). The fact
that non Qt users have to deal with Qt kits is really painfull. Except
this point, YES Qtc is a really awesome C/C++ IDE, locator, completion
and refactoring make it superior to many other IDEs.
