2 more points:
- The Qt installer doesn't provide roll-back methods, so now i'm stuck
with this new QtC version.
- If cmake integration is a feature in development, then the plugin
should be marked as experimental and be disabled by default. And so by
activating it, i would agree with a potential beta quality. I've done
that a lot, for everything clang related, and i never ranted when the
code model was pulling my machine down to it's knees (remember the
early days?).
