While reviewing a Qt 6 build I found out that it seems that Qt 6 is
not adding the right [symbols versioning] to the private symbols as Qt
5 used to do... or maybe I'm missing something?

[symbols versioning]

As an example let's take

QTableView::QTableView(QTableViewPrivate&, QWidget*)


_ZN10QTableViewC2ER17QTableViewPrivateP7QWidget at Qt_6 6.1.2

This ought to be marked as


This is a really important behavior required to be able to easily
track those private symbols and be able to know what really needs to
be rebuilt on distributions, at very least on Debian/Ubuntu.

Is there something I am missing?

Kinds regards, Lisandro.
