it really depends on how business-critical your application is, and how
much time you are willing to invest when things go awry.

you should definitely expect breakages and backwards-incompatible
changes more or less all of the time, so you'd really need to roll out
upgrades in a very controlled manner.

many features are missing - my personal benchmark for declaring it ready
is when we are able to build qt itself with it, without resorting to any
external scripting. we are quite a bit away from that still. this is
where your own investment comes into play ...

or more succinctly, if i was a typical manager, i'd say "no way!"
