[Interest] My experience porting to Qt5 (on OS X)

Perhaps I'm missing something but a toolbar is a toolbar, no matter if it's under linux, windows or OSX.

The MacUnifiedToolbar is just style.

I don't see why an API that has worked since 4.x (albeit poorly) should be removed in Qt5. And I have no intention of re-writing my app in QML just to make it look right on OSX.

The concept of an integrated toolbar isn't cross-platform'ish either.
