I think they're all libexec except for:
 - qdbus
 - qdbusviewer
 - linguist
 - qmake
 - (possibly) qtdiag

The first three should promise backwards compatibility by design. The other 
two need to be suffixed.

I wonder if Assistant as a standalone application still makes sense. Is it 
used by the VS Add-in?
