I might have worded that incorrectly. I know what KDE4 will eventually
get stable, what I meant was "if it gets stable enough fast enough",
because I'm working with a deadline...

KDE3 apps from a KDE4 desktop would be nice (especially for apps that
don't get ported). Would the opposite be true also? Running a KDE4 app
from a KDE3 desktop? Some companies, government entities and schools
might take quite a while to upgrade their systems to KDE4, but we'd
still like them to be able to use what we develop on KDE4.
