At on Linux systems application developers kind of depend on the 
distribution's choice of system Qt.

So effectively, application developers need to support multiple versions
of Qt as they cannot really be sure which of their version the
distributors will combine with which version of Qt which is
conveniently ignored by our deprecators when they deprecated things
without offering a reasonably usable alternative.
