      Description

      I noticed a new pattern regarding recent releases. There seems to be a default to include all resources, including images and whatnot inside QRC files.

      I quickly noticed a pattern among new users and not so novice users: They tend to include everything because QtC requests it.

      In the past there was a pattern to deploy a qml folder, now the pattern is to include everything inside.

      PROBLEMS:
      This generates crashes like:
      virtual memory exhausted: Cannot allocate memory
      make: *** [qrc_qml.o] Error 1

      And generates HUGE binaries.

      I regard this as a BUG but i welcome to comments very much.
