But qt4 package in tesing/ could not co-exitst with qt3 package in the l/.
I'm using KDE4 so I'm not care for qt3 stuff. But it's painful for the ones
that still using KDE3. AFAIS, the SBo qt4 package can co-exist with the
offical qt3 package. So it is worth to remain a SBo qt4 package in my view.
But the SlackBuilds that using qt4 lib should be aware of offical qt4
package too.
