Small but persistent :-( Tip: amarok.

I really thing Qt<major> is just fine, more options will give us packagers 
more pain for little to no gain.

If the problem is switching between Qt 5 and 6 it's just a matter of defining 
some conditionals in CMakeLists.txt, as has been done for Qt 4 and 5 on many 
projects (phonon as an example).

Now if developers need something "easier" then the above might be provided as 
a CMake method. That will solve the issue and even give a common interface.

The vast majority of Slashdot readers use Firefox. “We only have 20
percent of our population on Internet Explorer,” he says. “It's exactly
flipped from the Internet as a whole.”
