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.
