That's a fine change to make, but it also illustrates the problem of
including a usable qtdemo. All of the demo sources and binaries would
end up in /usr/share/qt4/demos, which is fine for the sources but bad
for the binaries. The binaries would need to go in /usr/lib/qt4/demos
or something, and qtdemo would need to be hacked to find those
binaries... and it becomes annoyingly difficult to include useful demos
At least that's what I found when I tried to include it a couple years
