If someone comes with better idea how to split qt subpackage without
confusing users I would be glad :)

Don't we have "split-provides" for this case? See:
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Upgrade_dependencies_explanation#Splitting_and_Merging

My understanding of this (after quickly reading it) is that it helps for
upgrades. But it doesn't really help when a user installs the package
for the first time, does it? I think that would be the main issue Michal
wants to fix here.
