The goals of making Grantlee a Framework are:
* Make more frequent releases which don't depend on me
* Make it more easy for others to contribute to development
I think at the point that renaming happens, the name Grantlee will
disappear, and we'll have two libraries (KF5::TextDocument and
KF5::TextTemplates or so in CMake and probably removing the C++ namespace).
I think all of that should be done together and I don't think that
should be done until compatibility is broken to become Qt6-based (KF6).
If joining the Release Service helps reach the goals, and there is
consensus that Grantlee can't be a framework without partial renaming
(ie renaming the CMake interface but little else) in KF5, then that
might be the way to go.
