I think there is a kde specific repository somewhere. But as Patrice
points out there will be incompatibilities with some of the apps.

The newer Muse 0.7prex series also wants qt 3.3... :-( So I did build a
qt 3.3 a while ago but it conflicts with a lot of stuff in the distro
(for < FC2). I don't know what is the best way around this. Probably
releasing a backwards compatibility package at the same time to keep
existing apps happy, but that is not something to do in a hurry :-) 

I'm going on a trip starting hopefully tomorrow so this will have to
wait[*], I will not have access to email during next week so just make
music and do not think about upgrades :-)
