QtScript is going to be deprecated, but it will keep working for quite 
some time.

Sooner or later qbs must be ported to the QJS* API of the QtQml module 
anyway. The deprecation of QtScript is yet another motivation point to 
do that.

Note that the 1.3 branch of qbs still had to build with Qt4. Qbs 1.4 is 
the first version where such a port would make sense.
