TQt3 allows the TDE developers to use Qt4 libraries within TDE
applications, e.g. Webkit.  Qt3 does not allow this due to C++ namespace
conflicts (technically it is a problem with both the compiler and linker
caused by two different definitions of common classes such as QObject, but
the previous description gets the point across in a succinct manner).

I strongly recommend using tqt3 if posssible, but am keeping qt3
compatibility via tqtinterface for everything except the language bindings
modules (tdebindings, python-tqt, etc.).

Does this help?
