That was just one example of a big simplification that has a very
practical benefit. I was saying we could do that. But dropping Qt 4
conditional logic from configure is yet another big practical benefit. I
think we should do both.

Yeah, I would rather drop the version 4/5 logic rather than just go halfway and try to eliminate the QtOpenGL module while still supporting Qt4 for the main GUI. Trying to accommodate both versions adds a lot to the complexity, especially on systems that might have both (maybe partially) installed.
