I just spoke with some upstream Qt/KDE accessiblity devs, and they continue
to recommend that users of Qt4 applications to do some sort of opt-in (ie,
set QT_ACCESSIBILITY=1 manually). They said the support is just not good or
reliable enough to justify enabling it by default for everyone.
In short, I'd be in favor of including qt-at-spi in workstation's
installation set (but not set QT_ACCESSIBILITY=1 automatically).
I could possibly be convinced to set QT_ACCESSIBILITY=1 conditionally
somehow (based on some configuration key being set or not, for example)
p.s. This only applies to Qt4 applications, of course, Qt5 ones should work
out of the box.
