OK. Gambas 2 will never compile agains qt4, so you should ask for its removal.


Qt3 is graphically faster than Qt4 most of the time. 

Qt3 uses less memory.

Qt3 is usable through the network (X11 and NX), whereas Qt4 is far too slow, 
because it caches everything.

So if find that decision absolutely and deeply stupid. If you can tell Debian 
guys... ;-)
