For X11, it's a necessity.

For Windows, we could leave the functions in QtGui, since QtGui links to the 
Win32 libraries.

For Mac, it might be acceptable to do the same.

For Linux, it's not. QtGui does not link to any of the GUI libraries like X11, 
XCB, DirectFB or Wayland. The only one it links to is the libGL (which means 
it loads XCB/X11 indirectly). That means we need a separate library anyway.
