I don't think there is any plumbing. The "Qt Simulator" was already before just a special Qt version that did all the magic (like simulator startup etc) all by itself. We did have a special "target" for Qt simulator, but since we don't have targets anymore anyhow, that plumbing (that didn't do anything except forcing the simulator Qt version afair) is gone for good.
I *think* the Qt simulator would still just work when you define a Kit that uses the simulator Qt version.
