Good point :)

My idea is to just not build WebKit 2 on the core bots for a while and 
switch them to Qt 5 once it is a bit more stable (timeframe ~2-3 month?)

Qt 5 is still a regression paradise, I am affraid having the core 
builder on top of Qt 5 is risky.

On the other side, the WebKit 2 bot running the tests would switch to Qt 
5 when the patch land.

Suggestions are welcome on how to keep WebKit in good shape during the 
transition :)
