There's still the chance of doing **quite a bit** of work and backporting the 
changes to Qt4 and make qreal a double on armhf too. But this means a **big** 
transition for armhf would be needed, but on the other hand pkg-kde-tools' 
symbolshelper could be changed to properly manage Qt4 and Qt5.

I want to be clear: this last option could mean *lots* of work and I would 
definitely *not* go ahead with it without a patch to Qt4 ACKed by upstream and 
the rest of Qt/KDE-team.

But I think at least should be considered and team approved/discarded.

Kinds regards, Lisandro.
