Well if you were using modules that are no longer supported, or you run into some little incompatibility; but we have been trying to avoid API breaks.  QML files that begin with “import QtQuick 2.0” still work fine so far; also Controls, Layouts etc.  So IMO it’s less onerous than the python upgrade.
