No, you're entirely correct. My apologies. I guess I forgot that qt5
uses an unversioned install path whereas qt4 uses a versioned one -- on
the other hand, in self defense, qt4 doesn't exist in the official repos
anymore, so why should I concern myself with it or remember what it does? :D

(I am still kicking myself either way, don't worry.)


That being so, I think it would be fine to name it either adwaita-qt or
adwaita-qt5, but I still don't quite see the purpose in conflicting
against an alternative package name that should not exist. adwaita-qt4
can be its own unrelated package, I suppose.
