[Development] Linking androiddeployqt: boot-strap library or libQt5Core

Hi all,

In an attempt to deprecate [0] use of QTime as a timer (in favour of
QElapsedTimer, which does the job properly) I've tripped over the fact
that androiddeployqt links against the boot-strap library rather than
libQt5Core.  The former lacks QElapsedTimer, so I can't move ahead with
the deprecation until I've either changed it to link against the latter
or added QElapsedTimer to the boot-strap library.

Does anyone know why androiddeployqt links against the boot-strap
library ?  i.e. Is there any good reason not to change it to link
against libQt5Core instead ?

Does anyone know a good reason why (if I can't switch libraries)
QElapsedTimer should not be included in the boot-strap library ?
