I tend to agree that KDE should not add hard deps for "manipulative"
reasons - that has a very ugly attitude to it.
On the other hand, Qt 4.8 - while in theory ABI stable - broke quite some
things, starting at least with the qDeleteAll incident and also including
the switch to the raster graphicssystem as a default (not to mention that
mapToGlobal() works, works not. works, works not. works, ...? ;-)
Those carries a large potential to weakly (but effectively) break (while
not guaranteed, yet implicit) ABI and therefore should be subject to
Does cmake allow to intercept the configuration process and force a
conditional message (like a weak configuration error) to be confirmed* to
inform everyone about those implications and -quite intrusively- recommend
to build and test against Qt 4.8?
*best with "you god damn read this for the next 30 seconds - don't just
click OK, stupid" timeout... =P
