the complete kde-workspace requires Qt 5.3 and I'm quite sure we have
components which do no longer build with Qt 5.2.
Anyway: kde-workspace is soon going to raise the requirement to Qt 5.4 and
when that happens the code will certainly no longer build with Qt 5.3 as KWin
already has ifdef'ed codepaths for 5.3 and 5.4.
