No - KDE SC 4.6 currently depends on Qt 4.6 since we haven't
raised the dependency to 4.7 so far. As long as we don't,
having kde-qt stick to 4.6 provides the benefit I outlined.

So either we raise the dep to 4.7 (which I'd like to see as
well), or we keep it at 4.6, and if we do that we have to
decide if we want to move kde-qt to 4.7 anyway or keep it at
4.6 to make accidentally introducing 4.7-requiring code less

Best regards,
