Yes, Qt 3.2 is a run-time dependency.  I'm happy to continue maintainership of 
the module.

Thanks to Lubos (most of) the kde patches have been integrated into cvs, we 
just need to remove the #ifdef XRANDR_SUPPORT when we require qt 3.2.

We have that check already, in kdenonbeta/kcmrandr.

There is one problem still with the qt randr support (unless it's been 
resolved?) that makes including this in a release a bit problematic: font 
sizes in running apps are incorrect after changing resolutions (they need to 
be updated, and the gui re-layout-ed I'd say).
