for GCompris (compiled in Qt5 only), we have activities using the Calendar
qml object.

Previously, we imported the one from QtQuick.Controls 1 but this module has

the next version.

There is the one in Qt.labs which is available in Qt5 but not Qt6 (via
"import Qt.labs.calendar 1.0").

distributions using Qt6.2 so I'd rather prepare this transition sooner than
