Qt 5 is available for some time, but we don't have it yet (how can it
be?). Any packaging tries or ideas so far?

1) split (submodules) or single source package?

I'd use split.

2) source package names: qt5-${name}, qt5-${name#qt} or qt5${name#qt}?
   (i.e. qt5-qtbase, qt5-base, qt5base for qtbase tarball?)

3) binary packages

Qt5* (Qt5Core, Qt5Gui, Qt5Widgets etc.) for library packages?
(following pkgconfig feature names and our qt4 packaging scheme)
qt5-* (qt5-qmake, qt5-build etc.) for utility packages?
