Why do we still support Rosegarden?

Reasons not to support it.
1. It is not a kde project. Right now, Rosegarden is an independent project.
2. The current Rosegarden does not depend on KDE4, instead it depends
on Qt4 and other libraries (not unreasonable)
3. It has a large codebase that is aging, and is a highly specific
application, used for music creators, who will be using the latest
versions of it (for integration with things like jack and dbus), not
the ancient kde3 version.
4. we don't know anything about how it works code wise, sure we can
fix some problems here and there, but we obviously will not be
developing it.

Reasons to support it.
1. someone somewhere somehow may be philosophically against using Qt4.
