We of course are all for seeing KDE4 in ports sooner rather than later, 
I say lets figure out what it takes to make this happen, and go for it! 
I'm currently re-tasking our build server to build our next release of 
PC-BSD7 with KDE4 from Area51, so we can test with it, and work on 
porting our utilities over to QT4. The sooner QT 3/4 gets sorted out, 
the better.
