The signing needs the qca2 library, which is qt4. I'm not sure if the qt3 
version of that supports the kind of signing that Amazon requires.

So I don't plan to update the KDE3 version of Tellico to account for 
Amazon's changes. It's the same situation as if IMDb had changed their 
layout again, making that search not work. Right now, just too much to 
support and since I don't consider Amazon searching an integral part of 
Tellico, I'll just let it go. :)

Probably a good idea. I'll do that.
