Do you remember KDE2 development? If we have switched from the begining to 
KDE2 much more time were wasted. You remember 1 year of Corba development in 
KDE2? Who warranted that not the same happend with Qt Component and KDE3? 
Please consider that KDevelop is no KDE core application,but a normal "third 
party" application like koffice or kmud in my opinion. If I work on gideon I 
want to find bugs in gideon and not in the kdelibs. BTW: It is very 
_frustating_ to compile the kdelibs everyday and find bugs. Sorry I don't 
like the idea.

I think it will be enough to switch to KDE3/qt3 short before the first KDE3 
beta will be released. So we can release Gideon version which run on KDE2.2, 
so _everybody_ can test and use it the months before.

If you don't agree (sometimes this happend in the world. :-))  on this issue 
I think a short vote would be enough or?
