I know many people running old distros which will probably never get recent packages from the official repositories. I'm one of them, and many of my colleagues don't use recent versions due to non-existing packages. Finally, Windows users are better served, which is somewhat a pity!

Oh yes, I try to build a usable Linux package.
Linking Qt statically would be very complicated because of our plugin design. But shipping Qt libs shouldn't be that 
problematic. But I have to link the 3rd party libs statically which I haven't
tried before.

We should also list in Readme.txt at http://sourceforge.net/projects/kst/files/Kst%202.0.5/
the links to the distro-specific packages.
