Option (iii) is certainly the way to go. Problems like this are exactly
what the TC is for.
My suggestion: Add a "Recommends: libqt3-compat-headers" to libqt3-dev.
A dependency is too strong, since libqt3-dev is perfectly usable without
the compatibility headers, but a recommendation ensures that the compat
headers are installed along libqt3-dev in most cases.
