We disable kde4 integration indeed, nevertheless, we ship kde3
integration with our generic build.

Even if it was not big change, it is not trivial. We are building our
generic builds on a CentOS4 (pretty old system) enhanced with these

This is done so in order to meet the same baseline like OpenOffice.org
is having. Basically, it has a pre-cairo gtk+ and fairly little versions
of other libraries

I tried to package relatively newer crippled version of kde4 libraries
just to be able to build against them, but I failed because the machine
has an archaic dbus and upgrading that one would basically break all the
system. If someone comes with a way to produce packages of just the
needed libraries and nothing more, the integration will come into
question. Nevertheless, many distros that distribute this fabulous
office suite that is LibreOffice do their own kde4 integration, so I
assumed that the generic builds are good for QA and for folks doing
computer archeology.
