i suppose the question is:

what is the intersection of qt4.4 and the next release of myth?
if 4.4 becomes universal (ie. packages are available for all the major 
distros) close to the release of myth then it makes sense to depend on it.
if that is not true then it would be premature to rely on it

i for one would say "go for it"
look how long it has taken to move from qt3 to qt4
