Yes, I would do that, but we haven't decided to remove Qt5 yet.  I was 
just putting that out for discussion for now.

I suppose that we should decide the Qt5 issue first and then work on 
transmission.  Archiving qt5 and fixing up qt4 would not take me long. 
I could have that done this afternoon if we decide that's the way to go.
