Thanks you all for the feedback!

Having KDE at that guesstimate of june/july 2016 is actually quite good, 
although it would have been better sooner for other non-KDE stuff to follow. 
Anyways good news :)

Does any of you think of any way to gently push people to port their stuff to 
Qt5 without calling it a "removal" at once? I do understand that we might not 
be able to remove Qt4, but I *think* we should start pushing it somehow. I'm 
open to other ideas :)
