[webkit-qt] qt5 version updated for bot / development

I don't understand why we should stick to a given version. Every fixes
we do in Qt5 (which is on-going dev version, so read a lot) and then
QtWebKit will be slown down by the fact that we need to :

- ask Ossy to update the bot.
- wait the bot to be updated.
- warn the ML
- finally cq+

Yesterday a build fix (the drag and drop stuff) was hold, blocking a
lot of people because of the bot. I gave up and apply the patch

I know Ossy is very sensible about the bot but the WK2 one is not
public, Qt5 is still a very moving target with quality control and a
set of keys (the CI ones) that we could stick with.

What about updating it every day at a given time. Worst case a patch
in QtWebKit will not be stuck for long, it doesn't require Ossy to be
always available and it helps us to fix both Qt5 and QtWebKit at a
fast pace.

QA is good, QA is important, but QA should not slow down developement,
it rather helps it to get better. Today it feels on the way rather
than helping us like WK1 bots are doing.

/me expects an angry Ossy answer :D
