Sure, if you want to depend on pkg-config for kde, you can have your own
copy of FindQt4.cmake for cmake.   The one in CMake itself can not depend on
pkg-config.  Although, I do think it will make it harder for kde developers to
work with uninstalled qt versions like qt-copy.  But, I suppose I can live with
developers complaining that cmake can not find qt correctly, and point them to
this thread.
