How has your experience with getting mythtv into a Qt4 been so far? It's 
pretty hard from what I hear, but very much worth it.  For example if 
it's written in Qt4 then it can run in QTopia (which write straight to 
the frame buffer so you can cut out all of the bloat of XServer) and 
apparently Qt4 is even faster, and easier to code with.  Besides, Qt3 
isn't supported anymore, and even KDE is switching to Qt4.

Are others working on this branch with you as well?  Perhaps anybody 
who's done a qt3 to qt4 conversion before?  It would be very exciting to 
see this kind of an upgrade. :-)
