The roadmap seems to indicate that we want to complete (or
nearly complete) qt2/win32 before getting into qt3/win32.  Is
that correct?  I am sure that they are closely related and a lot
of code can be shared.  But I don't see much of a reason to work
on qt2/win32 at all.  Certainly some programs are written for
qt2, but not many any more... and if they are, it would probably
be better to make them qt3 programs.  Qt 3 was released almost 2
years ago (Oct 2001).
