For Qt apps I agree, but for all other kde3 based appes (basket notepads, etc) 
qtconfig doesn't have anything to do with it. All of the default fonts and 
settings relied on the kde3 control panel and -- that's gone. Now you get 
whatever the kde3 runtime base defaults are which makes my fonts look huge in 
those apps (menus, etc..) because I use 8 point fonts and most of the defaults 
are configured with 10 (9 at the minimum)

I still have all the kdemod3 files, can I just do a pacman -U and install
