you are aware that with this we introduce just a extra platform we will get bugs
for? We then not have just Mac/Qt but also Mac/Qt-X11 which is not even officially
supported by Qt itself?

To tell me to look the other way is nice, but won't stop the bugs from coming
to our bugtracker.

In the dependency thread the concern was raised for bugs that will come in
if we make more stuff optional, but X11 on Mac is just a complete different level
of potential support problems.

Btw., if you like to have a second opinion read Boudewijn mail from that thead:


I fully agree with him.
