Broken is a bit rude for QtMultimedia team and for the people who
worked on the multimedia support in WebKit. It works okish, let's put

No it won't be out, there are few blockers before as I said in the
mail. We *need* a public Mac bot that at least build QtWebKit so that
Apple can test their changes and check they don't break Qt.
