Well, I do have to point out that KNode is currently a productivity (enhancing) bit of software for me, not something I had planned to be productive on.
There's already a lot of other KDE software that migrated from the former into the latter category for me, and that probably explains my growing appreciation for the decision made by the people behind the Trinity Desktop ...

I presume it should be relatively self-explanatory to suppress the Qt3Support library/module/whatever from the KNode build system (is it really the only component using that?) and see exactly how much Qt3 specific APIs/calls are still actually in use. I did something similar for DrKonqi5 last week (unknowingly :)) and that was quite trivial.
