Oh, I hear you volunteer to update the gazillions lines of code in the
wild refering those classes? ;-)

I am pretty sure API users would rather switch to Qt, than to follow
this deprecation.

Well, actually those V/H classes even serve a purpose: When using them
in a derived widget you can be sure, that nobody will be that evil to
suddenly change the orientation of your derived widget.
