Sad to hear this! You've always been quick to address issues or review 
my patches :-)

IIRC this is not the first time that Integrity creates trouble for 
people. Can we just drop it for QtWebChannel? Or maybe move QtWebChannel 
to be an add-on in Qt6?

I'd actually like to do this. Personally, I think the tech is quite 
cool. Additionally, at my company, we're using QtWebChannel for remote 
interop. It's kinda critical for us, so we have a vested interest in 
this getting the attention it needs :-)
I need to ask if I can perform the maintainer role on company time, 
though. With family and a day job there's not much free time left.

I'll discuss this in the company and then I'll get back to you!
