Maybe we should fix whats wrong with Okular, instead of supporting
packages past their EOL.

Like I said if it's possible to keep the most used QT3 packages around
until it requires significant work to keep them building correctly, then
we should do it. If we don't have the man power to do that, then I say

We shouldn't need to keep every QT3 app around, just the ones that get
used a lot. I only use KDE for development, everything else I do on Windows.

Packages such as:

K3B, KDevelop3, Kaffeine should be kept.
