Is it possible to use Qt6 and make the system export "Qt::" as an alias, 
possibly behind an extra option passed in find_package()? If an alias is not 
possible, is it possible to make find_package() set variables like ${QTCORE} 
that will be either Qt5::Core or Qt6::Core, depending on the one found?
