yes, Qt3 will be available in lenny.

you can take a look to libavahi, libpoppler or libqwt:
libqwt5-qt3 - Qt3 widgets library for technical applications (runtime)
libqwt5-qt3-dev - Qt3 widgets library for technical applications (development)
libqwt5-qt4 - Qt4 widgets library for technical applications (runtime)
libqwt5-qt4-dev - Qt4 widgets library for technical applications (development)
we have appended qt version to each -dev/lib path packages to make them
