And just like Konqueror, they depend on the latest and greatest libraries. You 
can't compile Konqueror with an older kdelibs.

This is especially true for backends: if the backend is updated to provide new 
features to the frontend, the frontend has to be the latest version.

So, no, this will not change. And I cannot ask developers to build the code 
with old (as in more than a day old) Qt after every change.
