I think for openSUSE at least this is not exactly the case because I think 
KDE3 will be back in the upcoming release after a gap of 4 releases.

Can you please check if it builds well against 0.18 without much effort?
If may you simply include it into the package or as a separate tarball?

Actually I am not sure how I can extract poppler-qt3 from an existing package and build 
it agains poppler from another package... And also probably the distro will not
accept a package which is hacked rather than comes from the devs.
