Let's give some dates:
 * Qt 5.4 release -> 2 Dec
 * Plasma 5.2 beta -> 19 Dec (tars)

This seems *very* close to me given that Qt has a quite good track at slipping 
the releases.

So there are two questions here:
 * Is there something in Qt5.4 that makes it clear we want to use it?
 * Do we care if Plasma5.2 is delayed because Qt5.4 is delayed?

Also going with Qt5.4 reduces greatly the amount of people that can contribute 
to those that want to build Qt themselves.
