The answer is: STOP distributing our own certificates. Rely on Qt's support, 
which also doesn't distribute certificates. The burden then falls on the system 
integrator (the distros), which will select a root CA package that they feel 
confident about.

They're also the ones who can roll out security updates directly to the users. 
We can't.
