Given the lack of feedback, I was actually planning to make +concurrent the default (= remove the variant), and add a +exclusive variant corresponding to the current default behaviour. That might make testing even easier...

It is usually easier to get patch reviews if the changes are as few as possible.
I have macports installed in a vm building qt4-mac based of René's work [1]. The new variants have been removed but the effect of the +concurrent variant has been incorporated along with the PortGroup changes to create a minimal patch to test concurrency.

If/when the qt4-mac build succeeds I plan to build "port echo depends:qt4-mac".

If having a non-local machine to test changes to qt4-mac would help Michael, René or anyone else contact me off list and we can work out access to my macports vm.
