This dedication to dropping MSVC2015x32 seems quite stange after the whole
controversy of dropping MSVC2013 and how many people prefered to tread very
carefully and slowly.

Unlike msvc 2013, 15th compiler is way better and doesn't restrain Qt
codebase nearly as much

> Hi,
> Currently Qt ships with 32-bit binaries for MSVC 2015, but not for MSVC

> binaries for MSVC 2015, as the numbers of binaries in the build remains the
> same. It will still be possible to manually build Qt for MSVC 2015, in the
> same way as it is possible to manually build for MSVC 2017 today. Feedback
> and viewpoints are much appreciated and will enable us to make the best
> possible decision.
