There is no nice list, but I found this:;a=tree

Looks like about 50 to 60% of the apps are part of the original KDE3 or closely related (kaffeine, koffice, etc.), which we already support. I noticed others that were Qt3 dependent but not necessarily KDE3 dependent, such as QCAD.

The list does contain pinentry, in the app-crypt collection, but isn't going to address the TQt3 bin file renaming.
