Part of the answer is: if they use most of the available styles (excluding
Keramik and dotNET), the toolbars will look /really/ bad. Also, flat
toolbar mode is utterly broken. There are also some cases where Qt3.2
sends bogus mouse move events, although I don't know whether anything is
seriously affected w/that in KDE3.1.x. And this is just the stuff I know
off. It's also probably the case that at least some developers may refuse
to honor support requests of any sort to this combination; in particular
because this combination has been explictily disabled by ./configure, and
so any packager overriding this for purposes other than testing is
explicitly taking their users into a 'this may not work' territory.
