Review request for KDE Frameworks and Alex Merry.

Repository: kimageformats


QtImageFormats 5.3 comes with DDS and JPEG-2000 plugins that support
more options and are generally better than our plugins. The only
advantage our plugins offer is that the Qt DDS plugin does not work on
sequential devices, while ours does. This is outweighed by other
improvements, though, such as supporting more variants.

(NB: I opted for disabling rather than removing because we want distros to push new KF5 versions back to stable distro versions, but they are probably not going to do the same with Qt 5.2 -> 5.3.

Built with Qt 5.3.1 - the JPEG-2000 and DDS plugins are not built, and the JPEG-2000 tests are not built or run.
