I don't think so.
The switch from Qt3 to Qt4 was big, i.e. really big. I mean "big".
But IMO it would be nothing compared a switch from Qt with QWidget to Qt 
without QWidget.
So I think QWidgets are here to stay.
Especially with the "Open Governance" I think about every current Qt user will 
want to keep them, not only us, but also all commercial Qt users.
