No, sorry. We consider this too much overhead at the moment.

I think you simply had an outdated version of qbs installed. Any active
branch of Qt Creator (at the moment: 4.1, 4.2, master) should be
buildable with:
    - the latest released qbs (at the moment: 1.6.0)
    - the current qbs release branches (at the moment: 1.6 [1.7 branch
creation has been delayed due to some patches still pending])
    - the qbs master branch (possibly with deprecation warnings)
In addition, any branch of Qt Creator should build with the version of
qbs that is bundled as a submodule.

Hope this helps,
