If we can settle on "compilers that support a language standard at the same 
level of gcc4 and msvc 8, then this sounds like an acceptable compromise to 

Supporting gcc <3 or even < 3.4 does not. When developing a sophisticated 
piece of software like KDE, we have to rely on the best available tools.
