Yes, it will be named as qwt5. And yes, it is possible to build it 
directly in the SciDAVis package, but I prefer to maintain both 
separated in order to make clear what are the dependencies of the package.

New QtiPlot versions not freely available is bad news... QtiPlot helped 
me a lot before SciDAVis.
Both projects were very promising as alternatives for Microcal Origin, 
but both are failing in this mission due to their slow development...
