I would like to add an opinion, I am one person who has several kits on his
setup, look at: http://imgur.com/mwlqEWY

But I find the reason for it to be a suboptimal Kit Definition mechanism in
QtC. For example, I need to develop on several Raspberry Pi for testing,
and some of them are DHCP clients, I need to create new kits for all of
them, following the Wizard or cloning. Then I need to deploy to several
targets, it is a pain to wait for recompilation based on a fact that only
the IP address was changed. Please see: http://imgur.com/mwlqEWY
