Right now, yes. But the library name change is mandatory to allow both Qt4 and 
Qt5 versions coexist, in case a user need both (and also help distro packagers 
to provide both versions at the same time).

And the easiest way to use Qt's loop is to use the QTcpSocket exposed in 
struct gps_data_t to notify the user of incoming data, thus avoiding
