I'm also long-time user of keepassx.

I checked the upstream. In surprise, I found the master version has
switched to Qt-5. And the upstream author is Felix Geyer, who is DD as
well.

Felix, could you have some inputs here?

In person, I hope keepassx is in buster. I can help uploading the
master version(with Qt-5) if Qt-4 is really needed to be removed from
buster. However I'm unsure if RT is fine with this big change(I assume
it's not ok).
