Finished? Sorry, but looking at the bug list it doesn't seems finished.

You mentioned VLC as an example:

And I really find unacceptable to "solve" this with a stack of unmaintained 
software which clearly it's not in it's best shape. This wouldn't be a problem 
if it had someone taking care of it in the upstream side, of course.

So there are only two ways out here:

- Find someone to take care of sni-qt as upstream and then another one (or the 
same person) to take care of the package.

- Let people start porting their stuff to Qt5. Yes, this might be the most 
troublesome right now, but they will have to do it at some point.
