AIUI, when "the time is right"--i.e. when QT4 is available on the 
majority of distros on which Myth is run.

Nope.  Just waiting until QT4 is ubiquitous.

Not hard, just mainly tedious, but unless you plan to keep up patches 
for quite some time, you may want to consider waiting until the time is 
deemed "right" before starting work on the conversion.  (I would guess 
that the chance of the time being right before 0.21 is released is about 
0--regardless of how common QT4 happens to be.  Chances are we'll have 
at least one more major version supporting/requiring QT3.)
