[Development] Assistant WebKit/WebEngine support

I don't think that support for x86 macOS will be retroactively added, especially since upstream as well as Apple are dropping x86.

MinGW is also not a supported compiler, but it's possible to build with clang-cl, which is what upstream is using. (Interestingly, Safari, FireFox and Chrome are all built using clang these days)

...at the risk of making enemies: so the platform issues(*) will be
solved till Qt 6.0?

So, even if I try to compile Qt myself on, say MinGW or 32bit MacOS - I
will end up with a (fully?) functional Assistant?
