That's my intention anyway.

So the idea is just to use a separate version number in Qt settings code (or
even for that specific setting) apart from VLC version? Or are you talking
about the difference in _where_ or _how_ to save the version number?

Maybe I could simply append the version number to that specific settings
entry name, so it makes a different entry saved besides the other one. Then
even going from newer version back to older will load correct older setting.
