I've put in a comment in the traceback concerning the KDE4 inclusion.

I think its important to stress when this comes up that Qt3 has been
unmaintained by Trolltech since July 2007.  And if anyone else finds
themselves in a position to defend the KDE4 inclusion, feel free to
bring this fact up.  I don't think we should let the laypress get away
with shallow statements of disappointment when it comes to KDE4
inclusion instead of KDE3.  We must politely challenge them to
consider the hidden risks in continuing supporting a KDE3 desktop when
the underpinning technology... Qt3 ...is no longer maintained by
Trolltech.
