Ugh, don't call it -dev, you'll confuse new users coming from
Debian/Redhat. They'll think it's the "development" package, and that
they need qt5 and qt5-dev both installed to be able to compile stuff
with it...

Maybe -staging (like wine-staging), or -latest? Probably a bad idea to
call it -current (that name's obviously already used for something else).
