Gentoo's kde-sunset overlay contains on the order of a hundred applications that aren't part of KDE3
proper, and aren't currently part of the Trinity project, but must have had/needed KDE3 or QT3
support or they wouldn't have been exiled to that overlay in the first place.  I don't know how many
of them have QT4 replacements, as many of them I'd never heard of before I poked into the files
this afternoon.  I also don't know how many of them are wanted/useful or need tweaking to
build for us.
