Got your point; on the other side, I'm happy with qt4 from testing, so
I have no itch to scratch any more here.  Thus, if there appear users
in situation you described (willing to stay with KDE3, but still to
have Qt 4 installed along), and if anyone among them is willing to
keep maintaining qt4 SBo SlackBuild after 12.2 release, then I'll be
glad to offer any kind of help; still, after 12.2 released I won't
update qt4 SlackBuild any more.
