That's the only option provided. You can choose one of:

a) port
b) keep it as it is

There are no other, current options. People could invest time in providing an 
alternative, like Uwe is doing, but that currently is not available.

All of my GUI projects have been ported.

That is, with a figure of speech. Mathematically speaking, I get a SIGFPE when 
calculating the percentage of my GUI projects ported to Qt Quick.
