as discussed on the change, there is not much one can do with the newly
introduced QGuiAction; it serves as a base class for QAction and
QQuickAction, The naming follows the Q(Gui)Application pattern.
> QMenu *menu() const;
> -> static QMenu *QMenu::menuForAction(QAction *action);
> void setMenu(QMenu *menu);
> -> static void QMenu::setMenuForAction(QAction *action, QMenu *menu);
This in my opinion is a no-go, we cannot do source-incompatible changes
in this area because there have been many deprecations already and code
needs to compile against 5 and 6 with minimal changes.
Ofc, having one QAction class in QtGui is desirable; but it must not
infer source-incompatible changes (and no, hacks like forward declaring
QWidget from QtGui or similar are also a no-go since it causes trouble
for Qt for Python).
