I don't think there is a feature which is a good reason, but a "bug". I am 
quite sure that there are still some issues around q_delete_all and the other 
changes in Qt 4.8 causing regressions.

Our distributions will ship 4.8 together with 4.8 and this combination might 
just be untested by the maintainers. So I strongly suggest that we make Qt 4.8 
a dependency for master just to get the code tested and fixed before distros 
use it.

So unless there is a good reason why not to increase, I would like to see 
master depend on Qt 4.8.
