You cannot port to something that doesn't exist/work.
There was no kdelibs based on Qt4 back when I started the redesign and my 
current Qt4-only project suffers from quite a few Qt4 quirks. I'm now waiting 
for some official news about trunk/kdelibs being usable (i.e. all classes 
ported and working somehow) and Qt 4.0.1 being released.
I'd also need some general hints on how to install KDE3 and KDE4 side by side 
without any problems. Furthermore it'd be very helpful if one could actually 
use KDE3 apps on a KDE4 desktop (last thing I heard was that it's impossible 
right now).

I don't think that's impressive, most of them are duplicates. Of course arts 
has bugs, but not THAT many.

I didn't find a well-working alternative yet :(
