Maybe I'm missing something in which case I apologise, but _why_ does it 
matter that Qt 3.2 doesn't work with KDE 3.1?

We don't expect KDE 3.0 to work with Qt 3.2 so why 3.1?

If developers are running HEAD and all its brokenness/unstableness, I don't 
think it's unreasonable to expect them to use a different Qt; it's not 
exactly difficult to build and get thanks to qt-copy.

I'm sure there are bugs and I don't think that those bugs would transpire 
without most of the developers testing Qt 3.2 with KDE 3.1.x which I doubt it 
going to happen, ever.
