Well, if we explore if there is a smooth migration path to PyQt5 first, there
might be a way to have 2.14 also support Qt5 and PyQt5 - so we might be able to
have a 2.14 working on OSX with Qt5.  That's why we're in a hurry, right?  But
frankly OSX is not really a priority for me.

For Debian (not so sure about Ubuntu) and Windows the Qt switch is not that
pressing (IIRC last time we discussed that meant after 2.14 goes out of
maintaince - so no need to have both Qts, both pythons and both PyQts in

Anyway, we can probably also use our findings in the new branch to update
master just in that direction before 2.14.
