Mark, Qt is forward compatible and thus you can use 4.8 while others use  or 
develop against 4.7.  So your rationale doesn't specify why you think it makes 
sense to force everyone to go through the upgrade of Qt.

The only reason is that you want to use Qt 4.8 features. But a simple ifdef 
can typically help.
