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.
