At the moment Qwt is released as source code only, so every user has to 
compile it and the included designer plugin himself. 

Given he wants to work with Qt 5.0 MinGW of course he has to the install 
this version - but to be able to compile the Qwt designer plugin for the 
Creator he also has to install a MSVC compiler and a Qt 4.8 package build 
for MSVC.

Then he has to build and install Qwt twice.

Yep and I'm very happy with the decision not trying to offer binary 
packages for any compiler and Qt version. 

But what about the Qt 5.1 betas - are there Qt creator packages included 
and if true how are those compiled ( here we also have msvc2012/64bit vs. 
msvc2010/32bit ) ?
