You will find that people have a wide range of views on this. If you want your
views to be taken into account, you are very welcome to join the QT4
initiative - zoom calls every Tuesday at 16:00 UK time. If your experience is
anything like mine, you will often find that an idea which seems perfectly
obvious to you is not at all obvious to others, so expect some robust debate.

You can also raise issues directly on the QT4 GitHub project, but your ideas
stand a much better chance of adoption if you're at the meeting to present
your arguments in person.
