No problem with qt3! I'm using it in parallel to qt2.
Here is what I did:
I downloaded the source.
cd /usr/lib
tar xvzf /downloaddir/qt-x11-free-3.0.0-beta1.tgz
ls -s qt-x11-free-3.0.0-beta1 qt3
export QTDIR=/usr/lib/qt3
cd qt3
./configure --whatever_options

setup kdevelop:
options->Documentation->Qt-Library-Doc : /usr/lib/qt3/doc/html/
options->Path->Qt 2.x directory : /usr/lib/qt3

That's it.
Your project should compile without problems. If the compiler complains you 
might have to add some includes. qt3 doesn't include as many headerfiles as 
qt2, it just declares classes.

Concerning the database support please have a look at what Trolls tell about 
that. I haven't experimented with this till now. Trolls say database support 
is only part of the commercial license.
