Hi,

I think you are missing the boat here. If it had been Qt3 migrating to Qt4
it would have been:
- easier
- not entirely necessary, since qt3 can piecefully coexist until the day Qt3
is removed from repositories (won't happen soon)

But RG was built on KDE3 which in retrospect is a big problem. Now that
distros move to KDE4 the extra resource usage cannot be ignored. The only
long term solution I see is to do what they did, move to Qt4

In MusE we have had it easier in that it's already Qt3, a Qt4 port was done
already a long time ago that might never see the light of day... due to
other circumstances.
Still, that current MusE uses Qt3 isn't a big problem, we will move when
there is sufficient reason, would have been nice to use some of the easy
eye-candy in Qt4 though (like stylesheets).

Now don't get me started about the waste of time/resources known as

As will the next Gnome be... it's evolution in progress...
