Do we really want KDE 4 packaged like that in Fedora 8? May 24 + 6 months = 
November 24, that's a month after the planned KDE 4.0 release (October 23). 
Thus I suggest upgrading all of KDE to the alphas in Rawhide as soon as 
possible after Rawhide opens for F8, with the target of shipping KDE 4.0 in the 
release (but if we have to ship an RC, so be it, it has been done more than 
once for the kernel, it has been done for OO.o 2 and parts of GNOME too) and 
letting KDE 3 be the compat libs, not KDE 4 as in my current packages. Yes, 
that will mean a lot of packages will initially have to build against 
compat-kdelibs3, but if we do things right, they'll just work on the shiny new 
KDE 4 desktop.

This is Fedora, not Debian stable, we have to move forward. Consider that Qt 3 
is going to be already EOL when Fedora 8 ships.
