Given the size and requirements of QUIC (and http3) we plan to wait for 
it to stabilize and get closer to release, then we can consider 
3rd-party libraries to implement an internal (at least for QUIC v1 IMO) 
"QQuicSocket" of sorts (glorious name). Then HTTP/3 would be on-top of 
that or through a library as well.
If we cannot find a suitable library we'll have to make one ourselves. 
So no plans for an implementation "soon", it will depend on the outside 
world. I would rather we be a little late to the game than have a flawed 
API for the lifetime of Qt 6 :)
