My quick opinion on it is that we could:
- Switch the official bots to Qt5 as soon as possible to aid the Qt5 beta
- Branch Qt4 at the same time as Qt5 (two different branches would be better I guess)
- Remove the Qt4 code from trunk (that might be broken already since the bots won't be running) once we stabilized the Qt5 branch
