That is (was?) the plan.

Then I didn't understand what you are proposing. Are you suggesting to let the
LTR and the regular release diverge indefinitely? That something we (I?)
would try to avoid - we (I?) don't have time to maintain two versions.
Backports will get harder and harder - and if we switch to Qt5 it might get
impossible to maintain the old LTR any longer anyway. It it needs to be
replaced by an newer version.
