...and the libraries. you cannot load a qt5 lib in a qt4 app.

actually from what I understand of the architecture the only bits that
could be qt5 based are:


along with some data files for dbus etc., everything else needs to be qt4.

Seems a bit much fiddling consdering stable is supposed to be pretty
frozen. How about upstream releasing a tarball that makes this happen
instead of every distro breaking their fingers with mixmatching two
sources of baloo into one coherent stack (just curious)?
