If qt3 is really popular with scientific apps, which presumably are slow 
moving targets which are not esaily /quickly ported to qt4, it should be 
enough motivation for the people who need qt3 to take on the maintenance, so 
no need to burden the QA team. You need a piece of software, you do the 
necessary packaging work - it's that simple, at least in theory.
