[aur-general] Qt4 / Qt5 package naming

With Qt5 becoming more and more available throughout Qt apps
(especially as KDE progresses into the switch), I think it's time to
consider adopting an updated naming scheme.

- Qt4 apps should use the -qt4 suffix
- Qt5 apps should not use any suffix or prefix
- Qt libraries should probably use a qt- prefix. (eg what is currently
qt5-base, qt5-doc etc should become qt-base, qt-location). Or
alternatively, no prefix at all and use upstream naming scheme
(qtbase, qtlocation, ...)
