It's very visible with regards to memory consumption though (as qt4 shared
libs will be used in addition to qt3 libs) and since KWin not only requires
qt4 but actually requires at least qt 4.7 (as you said) it means long term
release distros like RHEL6 or older Ubuntu and Debian releases would no longer
be able to run TDE.

Martin, you seem to be incapable of understanding that the real world doesn't
live on the bleeding edge and doesn't want to upgrade to the latest bleeding
edge distro release every 6 months!
You don't seem to have any clue about average user requirements and this is
certainly noticeable with KDE4, too.

I still cannot understand how the same group of people (or did most of the KDE
team change?) who made one of the best (most practical, usable, intuitive and
at the same time powerfull, flexible and configurable) Linux DEs ever (KDE3)
managed to then move on to produce such an abomination as KDE4.
