You understood correctly.

KDE Libs 4.0's printing will work only on Qt 4.3.2 because it will do a 
very ugly hack of modifying QPrintDialog. If you upgrade Qt without 
upgrading KDE, you will very likely lose those extra configuration pages. 
(Which Windows and Mac users won't be seeing anyways)

KDE Libs 4.1's printing will use Qt 4.4.0's, which will have the proper 
functions to do the work.
