I'd prefer the Qt4 versions too O:^)

Seriously, it'd be constructive to propose an alternative way of providing Qt4 and Qt5 versions of ports for applications that can be built atop either version (i.e. that don't provide an *optional* Qt-based backend, which would be provided through a variant).
NB: wireshark apparently cannot be built against Qt 5 yet.
