[Qt-creator] Raise awareness: Qt Quick Designer's need for love

I guess when you say QtC 5.x you are referring to QtC 3.x right? Or shall
we expect a big version bump?

Currently this bug:

The provided example in there has many facets, it's not just that code it's
very frequent. All the bugs i want to add are not reproducible with toy
code, and i just refrain reporting because i'va had a few "works here, stop
nagging"-style answers, i don't want to be annoying. That example is just
one i found to be easily reproducible, but it seems fixing it might have
great benefits all around.

Anyway, about QTCREATORBUG-11511, im sad it's not marked as P2 (or even
P1), because it breaks the designer, and renders it totally useless (unless
toy code is used exclusively).

OTOH, code rewriter crashes seems to be improving, im tracking master and
i've found few in the last weeks.
