I see. But this points to a greater problem: aside KOffice there are still a large base 
of KDE3 applications which are still not ported to Tqinterface. 
They are not in your repository, but they exist. Rejecting them will make TDE a not-so functional
desktop at least until full Qt4 integration is over.

And, btw, it honestly thought that you already completed Tqt porting of core KDE parts.
