By branching of the same version as Qt 5.0 it will hopefully benifit from the
stabilization up to Qt 5.0, plus it means we can hopefully keep the QtWebKit
for Qt 4.x version close to the branch used for Qt 5.0, which means we can
possible merge similar patches, etc.
From an communication POV it is also simpler to explain that this fork will
provide the features available in QtWebKit for Qt 5.0 to Qt 4.x (except
WebKit2 of course).
