I still think this should be removed. It made a lot of sense before the 5.0 
release because the API in qtbase was changing so rapidly. That is not the 
case now. 

Unintended breaks are still caught by CI when qtdeclarative is built, albeit a 
bit later than when qtbase is built. This is the case for most repos 
downstream from qtbase. While it can be a good thing to prevent unintended 
breakage earlier, I don't think it's worth it and it should be removed. Use 
the hardware for something else instead.
