My summary would be as follows:

* We rename QList to QArrayList
	* We can still discuss whether it should rather be Qt5::QList
* QStringList and QBAList will be implemented using QVector
* QList becomes an alias to QVector in wip/qt6 (for now at least)
* We delay the decision on what QList will be in Qt 6 for a little while
* QVector for Qt 6 will most likely be updated with the changes Thiago has waiting since quite some years
* To be able to reach a decision:
	* we test some Qt libs and apps with QList being an alias to QVector
	* We know that the only source incompatibility is the stability of references
	* If it turns out that most of Qt and (maybe also KDE) run without problems with QList = QVector, we should IMO go down that route.
	* The reason is that aliasing those classes will resolve many other problems we could otherwise run into
