This has recently been packaged by Linaro and is currently in Ubuntu's
New queue.  It's done as a separate source packages which means it
doesn't get in the way of those of us who only care about the X11
version but is a large duplication of code.  Being a different ABI
existing Qt apps won't work with it, they would need recompiled.
Nokia are currently working on a new embedded version called
Lighthouse which is more generic and will work with more outputs so
this QWS version may not have a very long lifetime.

to appear soon at https://edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/qt4-qws
