It is still discussed? I thought it is pretty high at the priority list anyway.

I mean, if you don't do that in 2020 (Qt6), when will you do it? You can't do it in a
minor release, can you? 

x64 is standard in many applications and memory sizes are growing. I have seen to many
platforms/frameworks die an early death because developers where afraid to enforce
fundamental architectural fixes/improvements (including evolving language)... until it was
too late.
