Hmmm, I think the changes between KDE 1.x and KDE 2 aren't comparable to the 
changes that will be made between KDE 2.2 and KDE 2.3(?) based on Qt3.
Sandy is right when he says that we might lose beta users who haven't the 
"Qt3 KDE" installed. I think matching Gideon to Qt3 is not going to cause 
many work. So on my opinion we should wait until a certain time (maybe when 
the KDE team ships the first beta/alpha version based on Qt3) so that there 
is a user base that uses the "Qt3 KDE". At the other side, Qt3 offers some 
interesting things. How to other projects (KOffice) answer this problem?
