I agree that QPA is a very welcome improvement. We will will certainly
adopt it for our port of Qt4 to Genode. That said, our current solution
works quite well, too. So switching to QPA is not an urgent matter for
us. I think a good time for the switch would be when we move from Qt4 to
Qt5. But I do not see this happen before the end of the year.

Which immediate benefits do you see from switching over to QPA? Maybe
knowing the motivation behind your question would create an additional
incentive to take on this project?
