That's right. Moreover, it *is* right now. At the moment, it just few
buttons an icons that got resized, everything else still extremely
tiny on hidpi. Also, remember volume slider, it is ugly now because
current logic produce scale factors in range 0.9-1.1 for regular
screens, and never 1.0.

I guess, it's safe to assume that guys with Qt<5.6 are from dpi
unaware world. Hopefully, HiDPI is not so common in windows/linux
world nowadays, so those who seek for smooth picture should use
nightly/beta/other-non-stable versions to reach their goal.
