It is.

That's what we fixed now.

I assume you don't want to think about things that we cleared and still don't 
seem to have a clear insight into the package itself. In that case I would 
really appreciate to stop ranting. If Qt packaging is so easy to you, go 
ahead and take maintainership. You'll see what you'll get.

That's what I'm asking, too. I would be very much in favour of dropping a 
static qt anyway. I think providing a static version is quite optional.

Which TT customers do anyway.
