Hi Lorenz,

I can only reply to the second half of your request.

That's only true if you *change* the existing method. Adding a new
overload while keeping the existing method *is possible*. So if you have:

   void QFutureWatcher::waitForFinished();

you can add in Qt 5:

   void QFutureWatcher::waitForFinished(int timeout);

and merge both in Qt 6:

   void QFutureWatcher::waitForFinished(int timeout = 30000); // or -1
