We WILL NOT provide a QtQuick1 tarball for 5.7. This was advised during the Qt 
5.5.0 release, over a year ago:

 - The QtWebKit and QtQuick1 modules and support for the QML 1 language
   are deprecated and Qt 5.5 will be the last release to include
   them. Starting with Qt 5.6, the source code for those modules will
   not be included in Qt's packaging. Compiling the 5.5 release of
   QtWebKit modules along with Qt 5.6 or future versions should
   work. QtQuick1 is not guaranteed to work in future versions after
   Qt 5.6.

 - The QtScript module is deprecated and will be removed from Qt's
   packaging starting with version 5.7. The 5.5 and 5.6 releases of
   QtScript should continue to work along with Qt 5.7 and future

That's because QtQuick1 uses Qt internals quite extensively. There's no 
guarantee that it will even compile, much less work.

Yes, this will be a pain for Linux distributions.
