Qt3 is a toolkit, nothing more.  If a toolkit works correctly with the
latest distributions and already contains the features needed for the
applications built on it, there is no reason to "upgrade" to a completely
different toolkit that is missing a number of those features (Qt4).

Remember that KDE3.5.10 is considered obsolete, yet many have seen its
successor (KDE 4.0) as inferior.  The definition of obsolete varies in the
FOSS community based on who is applying the term. ;-)
