I bumped my local qt installation to your package. So far everything
seems to be working just fine (just some basic desktop usage so far),
as it did with the previous qt version. Let's see in the next couple
of days how it behaves under normal usage.

I know about all this qt source and binary compatibility and such, but
do you have any idea about performance? Would recompiling important
desktop packages like kdelibs/kdebase have a noticable performance
increase or would this be just marginally?
