If you install something as part of kdelibs you're bound by the kdelibs
rules wrt. bc etc. AFAIK.

FWIW, the Qt modeltest code was only ever available from svn and that
has spread itself too pretty well I think. So maybe its enough to brag
about the test library a bit more and people will just copy it into
their app-code temporarily during debugging?
