As far as I know, I do what I want, and can even change my mind, even if 
I actually don't.

Quoting myself: "As it's far from sure at the moment that 'gb.gtk3' will 
be stable enough, 'gb.gui.qt' may be used again in the next stable

I noticed nothing as QT6 is not released yet, and I see no reason why it 
should consume much more resource for managing widgets, as apparently 
nothing really changed on that level since QT5.
