If I read that correctly, the patch takes care of updating system provided Qt versions when they are installed or uninstalled. The initial detection of "the" system-installed Qt Version should also work with stock Qt Creator, via "qtchooser -l". You may want to push a clean version of this patch upstream. Automatically adapting to system configuration changes seems desirable to me.
