The reason is what I stated: the qt-everywhere package is not as well-tested 
as the individual modules that compose it. The modules are tested on a daily 
basis by the CI. The everywhere package is not.

The everywhere package breaks every other month in dev (and I only build it 
once a month). I have no way of knowing if what gets backported to any branch 
can break it or not. We can hope the majority of breakages come from the 
innovations that go into CMake, but that's not a guarantee.
