There are no concrete plans at the moment, as we do not have enough 
resources for this. The Android support in qbs is essentially a proof of 
concept, demonstrating that it is possible to use qbs for that platform. 
We do intend to keep it working, but we are not actively polishing or 
extending it at the moment.
In order to have sensible support in Qt Creator, we'd first need to 
replace the somewhat ad-hoc approach to how we deal with the 
"sub-profile" problem. This is tentatively planned for 1.5, but that 
release is still some time away.
