I was honestly surprised we still used it when I first built KF5.

I suspect it's because it was easier to port strigi (which is after all not 
strongly tied to a toolkit) than to port its users, not because of a positive 
decision to keep using strigi. But I don't know, I haven't done a lot of KF5
