[vtk-developers] VTK and QT5

I see that on the ParaView Developers list that they are moving to Qt5 by
default. See Utkarsh's post on Mon 16 Jan 2017, titled: "ParaView and Qt 5".

Given that ParaView is built on VTK and that Qt5 is well supported on
modern machines. Isn't it time that VTK defaulted to Qt5 also?

It seems to me that is a good opportunity to do this now that VTK has moved
to C++11.

>From reading this: https://woboq.com/blog/cpp11-in-qt5.html it shouldn't
affect those still using Qt 4.8.
