Yes I should have mentioned that. But from user-programmer point of view
it's very Posix-ish, so if i wished to make a port for PS4, i'd be
starting from Linux QPA probably and hope to get at least a skeleton.
As I peek into plugins/platforms it should not get long to get a rude
port. Or maybe I am overlooking something, I am quite greenhorn with Qt5/QPA.

Unfortunately I did not worked with the console at that level, so I have
a very rough idea. But still... i'd expect significant similarities at
