Very good statement. 

The current implicit stories seems to be: "Throw out some parts we can't afford" and
"Replace the builds system". Which are both not a very attractive from the application
developers point of view. Did I miss something?

What would be your story proposal? "Make Widgets great again"?

"Modernize the language to C++17" would be a possible story as well (especially teaching
moc to handle templates).

Any proposals for a Qt 6 story?

I hope my suspicion is wrong that Qt has spent so much on a few cash cows that it is no
longer capable of any other major advances (but must even go backwards, see XML thread).
