  What about making Qt3 use 45 as its priority for alternatives? Qt4
  uses 40 at the moment.

  Though one can argue that if a user installs Qt4, he may as well
  expect (or not be surprised by) the tools pointing now to the Qt4
  versions. It seems that Brian thinks this way, since his patches
  propose 35 for Qt3 and 40 for Qt4. Brian, is this something you're
  strong about, or can we discuss having this changed?


  P.S.: I recommend that follow-ups to commit messages are done in -talk
  instead of -commits.
