That's a good point and I agree.

Well, I spend some time this week-end, and I think it's working now. See :
https://github.com/gilir/liblxqt-qt5

I started from the qt5 branch, I tried to adjust it in the same spirit (since there is more than a qt5 on this branch). Any comments are very welcome.

I also ported lxqt-about, just to see if it's working properly :
https://github.com/gilir/lxqt-about-qt5

Even without any theme set up, the Qt5 looks prettier than the Qt4 one (just my personal opinion) :-)
