Comment (by mojca):

 One warning. If ports can declare dependency on different versions of Qt
 (Qt 5.5 or 5.6 or dev or KDE or whatever ...) then the PortGroup needs to
 provide a way to automatically generate variants as well, otherwise there
 will be troubles with ABI compatilibility when users decide to switch to a
 different version of Qt.
