Correction: there will be no offline installer *provided by TQtC*.

Like Nikolai┬╣, what I expect to happen is that some third party will
start repackaging Qt, and will become the de facto binary provider.

Honestly, the first thing that went through my head when I read the blog
was an image of someone at TQtC thinking: "Making binary installers is
just so *haaaaard*. We really don't want to do it any more. Won't
someone please step up and do it for us?"
