I know as I have worked on Trinity for years now.  The problem is not just
letting it sit in the repository, the problem is in enabling TQt4 support
for it.  If you look at the Trinity roadmap, 3.5.13 is supposed to include
full TQt4 support (which will bring Qt4 support once TQt4 has been fully
stabilized).  koffice is a very large code base that will take a
significant amount of time to port to TQt4, even with the automated tools
I have written to assist with that task.

I hope this helps some.
