No.  The two are NOT binary compatible.  kdelibs has changed too much.

If you (or another RedHat/OpenSUSE person) want to do that please feel
free to do so.  Personally I use Ubuntu and Debian and am therefore
completely unfamiliar with the RedHat/Fedora/OpenSUSE way of doing things.
 The only thing I would ask is that the packager please send me a .tar.gz
file that compiles against Trinity 3.5.12 so that I may add the new
application to SVN.
