Should tdevelop generate apps using the new TQt3 binary names?

Tim, Darrell,

  I thought about giving tdevelop a run through working with the older examples
from kdevelop, but ran into questions and a problem. Before spending the time
doing this -- should I expect it to work? What about documentation for tdevelop?
I found the entry in the help center, but the tdevelop pages are blank. Are the
examples or references from the kdevelop docs still workable?  (i.e., if you
take a kdevelop tutorial and substitute the new binary names should tdevelop
still build the examples?)

  If that is not possible, does that mean there is really no such thing at the
'Qt3' toolkit for development purposes in TDE? What to do with tdevelop's
reliance on Qt3 as a toolkit in the IDE?  How far back would we have to go in
the GIT tree to get to a point where tdevelop would build the examples? My guess
is just before the TQT3 binary rename. Would that be a point where we would
expect tdevelop IDE to be able to build older example code?

  Looks like a minefield. Hopefully it is just because I don't fully understand
it, but to me, it looks like the ability to have a TQt 'toolkit' in TDE for
tdevelop integrated development environment purposes wont work with the current
code. Am I thinking about this right?
