As long as each component is bcondized and there are no "to the exact
release" dependencies then I guess it's fine. Doing qtwebengine (and all
the other components) rebuild each time qtbase needs a small packaging
adjustment would be tough on arm, though I'd understand if nobody cared
about my use case.
