IIRC latest KDE2.x.x releases will not work nice (and even compile) with plain 
Qt2.0 because they uses new methods that came after that release. So the 
users HAD to upgrate to Qt > 2.0 to use it correcty.
At the same time ppl that compiled something using Qt2.0 could still use those 
binaries through BC.

I think that KDE3.2 will surely need Qt3.1 or later because it will use some 
newer methods.

Where is the problem??
