QCad isn't a dialog oriented package. It is a true cad package where most
drawing is done from the command line. e.g. line; 6.35 ;23 deg. I have no doubt
a precompiled Qcad will run on TDE, but if you need to rebuild it, will it
rebuild on TDE with TQt3 name changes?  My guess = no.

Hopefully not much, but it should be a valid test where what is learned would be
applicable across the board.
