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).
