It works fine, but the legacy QGL APIs don't help you much. Rough pseudo-code which works for me:

   QWindow *win = new QWindow
    win->setSurfaceType( OpenGLSurface );

    QSurfaceFormat format;
    format.setMajorVersion( 3 );
    format.setMinorVersion( 2 );
    format.setProfile( QSurfaceFormat::CoreProfile );

    win->setFormat( format );

    QOpenGLContext* context = new QOpenGLContext;
    context->setFormat( format );

... make context current and start using QOpenGLShaderProgram, making glXXXXXX calls, etc
