Do we have bug reports for those? I doubt the crashes are random, they only 
appear to be. They are likely very deterministic and most of them are easy to 
fix, if the issue is in Qt.

There's a QML compiler.

Those are not the facts. I've seen Windows, Linux and macOS operating system 
crashes. Those are hardly worthless. They're worth billions. My apps on my 
phone crash sometimes too, and yet I still use them.

I doubt it.

Does it mean other compilers are not supported? That's a showstopper.
