I guess Ingo meant the three major breakages between 1/2, 3 and 4. As much 
as I'd like to use Qt container classes everywhere (including non-GUI) 
code the track record is rather weak compared to STL containers and other 
libraries. GUIs come and go - code under the hood often has to live much 
longer :)
