Request to bump Qt version requirements to 4.6.3 for KDE SC 4.5 (and above)

From what I understand, Plasma in KDE4 Workspace 4.5 relies on notifications 
provided by libdbusmenu-qt to control what to draw in system tray. And 
apparently Qt <= Qt-4.6.2 contains known bug that causes 'close application' 
notifications not to be delivered - as a result causing system tray 
regressions - application icons not disappearing.

and similar reports.

Because it's quite visually exposed and obvious bug (confirmed to be solved 
with mentioned Qt upgrade), I propose bumping Qt requirements to 4.6.3 for 4.5 
branch and trunk for whole KDE SC release (currently it requires Qt 4.6.0).
