I used it extensively in previous jobs, and my experience then was that it worked well enough to use, and boosts productivity a lot compared to writing all the widget-construction code by hand.  It got even better with the Creator integration.  If there are some bugs and usability problems, they could be fixed, so I don’t see a need for a rewrite of the same functionality.  But the Qt Company has not been focused on widget issues for several years now, because of QtQuick.  So, the new designer is effectively the QtQuick designer.  But if anyone feels like fixing any annoying usability issues in the old designer, patches are welcome.
