The solution is to get the Qt5 support into QGIS 2.14 at least.

Users of testing should expect the removal of qgis soon, and therefore
the inability to install qgis from the testing repositories.

Users of unstable should expect qgis to become uninstallable when
libqtwebkit4 is actually removed. Before that will happen, the QtWebKit
module will be removed from python-qt4 [0]. When that happens we can no
longer build qgis until it can be switched to Qt5.
