Please note that the task is for Qt 5.0 blockers: stuff that needs to happen in 
5.0 because it cannot happen in 5.1 or later releases.

If this is about a few methods that need to change in QAction, it's probably 
fine to do them even after the feature freeze. If it's a major change, it needs 
to happen *now*. And by that I mean this week, starting tomorrow.

Do not underestimate the power of nitpicking. Even experienced Qt developers 
get a lot comments to act on when making new APIs (see the QJsonDocument 
review, for example).
