  Nah, I'm fine with putting it in the Depends line of libqt3-*-dev as
  long as it's noted in the changelog.

  So, I'll remove it from build-depends, and add a changelog entry in
  the appropriate place. What tag do you prefer to mark the change as
  yours? I've used "[cm]", feel free to change it.

  And with this (will wait for an answer of the "[cm]" bit above), I
  think we can declare qt-x11-free 3.3.4-4 ready to go. Objections?
