summary: no hard requirement to jump to Qt 4.8 from plasma at this time ...

Qt 4.8 brings a number of speed improvements and general goodness which 
certainly helps the various Plasma workspaces, but i do not believe we have 
any hard requirements on it at this time ... so i'd love to see people using 
Qt 4.8, but we can keep a minimum 4.8 requirement for the time being.

my only concern is that our team works with Qt 4.8 right now, most of our 
users will likely get Qt 4.8 with SC 4.9 packages and so our code will be well 
tested with Qt 4.8 and Qt 4.7 will not be as well tested. i don't think there 
is much we can do about that though, unless a magic QA fairy passes by 
dropping testers. :)
