We are living in an Open Source World, and with it the opportunity to 
collaborate and do things we, as individuals, could once only dream of.

Was a project plan drafted, such as the migration order for 
libraries/programs so that the smallest core of Trinity could be tested 
with Qt5, followed by successively bigger lists of the dependent 
libraries/programs to bring the whole of Trinity/Qt5 into the light.

With such a plan, the means of managing the migration as well as the 
opportunity for contributors to assist would become a reality.

Qt5.9.1 is out, and with Qt4 being dropped by Debian, the opportunity to 
bring Trinity into Debian just sweetens the deal in my humble opinion.
