Just in case you haven't seen that yet, Nokia is going to drop
QAbstractFileEngine for Qt5. I think they even deprecate the class and
all related ones in Qt4.8 and add a new Filesystem-API that does not go
through the file-engine stuff (or maybe they just change the existing
classes, not sure right now).
