This discussion got way too personal. I'm not even sure what it's about 
in the first place anymore. The BC is an issue for users who use binary 
packages (be it ones made by their distributions or bought from 
theKompany or gotten in some other way). The idea is to keep those 
working. They will? Well, then there's no problem. Discussion ends. 
Now I'm really not sure who'd compile Qt by hand and neglect to do the 
same for KDE, but if one does then putting a remark saying "WARNING: 
you have recompile KDE after compiling/installing this version of Qt" 
in README.qt-copy should be enough.

To be honest I don't see a problem here. I think that in one of your 
other emails you said that in the long run this change will be 
beneficial for us - so if the benefits outweight the costs 
(recompilation of KDE after upgrading Qt) then I see completely no 
point in reverting.


So many pedestrians -- so little time.
