My additional note is that: Qt 4.8 is most likely not going to be
available for Harmattan (unlike qt5) because of several reasons;
whereas it would be nice to get new KDE versions for our N9/N950
devices (kdelibs, plasma-components and so forth).

I would personally be a bit disappointed, if I cannot experiment with
hot features, like plasma components, on my Harmattan, if the hard
dependency is agreed upon. It is just my two cents though. :)
