Mix ∧ Match of KDE3 and KDE4 application is possible without problems. We've been doing that for a long time, especially as it took applications some time to port from Qt3 / KDE3 to Qt4 / KDE4.
Unported applications are less of a problem. It's when you run "latest and greatest KDE4 app, find out that it's removed half of the features you need and then try to fund KDE3 version of it only to find out that all configuration is destroyed you understand that everything is not as it seems.
We'll be able to provide the latest GStreamer to our users without them having to install new versions of their applications. It's a little tempting to now say "told you so".
Yup. Just one tiny question: how many of these applications actually benefit from a new versions of GStreamer?
It's not as if old versions of GStreamer suddenly go bad if new version is released. If you don't use new features then what's the point of upgrading?
