I had something along these lines in my drafts folder, but Guillaume phrased 
it much better than I did and I couldn't agree more.

It's the *only* reason Kopete supports Qt 3.1.0 and KDE 3.1.0 and all 
subsequent versions and combinations you can make of Qt and KDE.

Kopete 0.6.x supported KDE 3.0 and Qt 3.0 as well, but never officially 
supported Qt 3.2 and KDE 3.2. The upcoming 0.7 is the replacement and 0.6 
will be needed only by those who still run KDE 3.0.
