I guess the only thing that currently prevents that pretty much is the rumours 
about KDE 3.1.x not working correctly with Qt 3.2. I've build Qt 3.2 from 
scatch to test that and replaced qt-3.1.2 on a test machine with KDE 3.1.2 
with it to see how it works out. I can't see any odd behaviors or anything 
that wouldn't allow us to switch to Qt 3.2 generally, so the question is: 
what are the "bugs" that Qt 3.2 would trigger in a KDE 3.1.x environment ?

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
