The documentation needs to reflect reality. If there are sufficient builds 
that do rename (and there will be), the documentation should mention. I think 
this is something we can agree on.

I won't opine on the SDK from TQtC. I don't use it as it isn't meant for 
developers of Qt. And since it can't be anonymously downloaded any more, I 
probably never will either. It's your choice whether to apply the naming the 
majority chooses.
