Then you're hoping for the impossible. As one of the people involved, I can 
tell you that KDE 4 in Fedora 9 was not a mistake, but a very carefully made 
decision, that there are no plans to revert to KDE 3 (which would likely break 
upgrades from F9 in several ways, and would just generally be a 
counterproductive step backwards) or propose both versions (which would be a 
lot of work and also mean violating the standard FHS directory layout, at least 
in spirit) in Fedora 10 and that I would be strongly opposed to any such plans.

s/Red Hat/the Fedora Project/
This decision was not made by Red Hat, it was made by the Fedora KDE 
maintainers, and the Fedora KDE SIG as a whole. Most KDE SIG members are not 
Red Hat employees. I do not work for Red Hat and neither do Rex Dieter, 
Sebastian Vahl etc. And to the best of my knowledge, the Red Hat KDE packagers 
(Than Ngo and Lukáš Tinkl) haven't been told what KDE version to ship by Red 
Hat's management either. Of course I can't speak for Red Hat, but I believe 
they trust us who actually work on KDE to do the right thing.
