    Description

      After deciding to ramp down Qt Conan, we should concentrate on improving the installer CLI experience. 

      For example, the CLI documentation is in Qt Installer Framework documentation, where it is difficult to find it. We should link it at least for "Get and Install Qt", which currently documents only the GUI installer use. 

      The CLI has been reported to be a little bit challenging to use because of complicated component names. We should study, if we can provide easy to use alias names like install qt-virtualkeyboard. 

      We should also study, if the default installation could be used in the command line, such as install QtDesignStudio. The component names should not be case-sensitive.
