If that software is using Qt3, and has a problem with it, then at
least we have a better explanation why we can't help with it.

Then these drivers will obviously not install. But if you are in an
environment where you explicitly turn off universe because you only
want to run officially supported software, then you quite likely don't
want third-party drivers either?

As Scott already said I see no hurry to changing all these rdepends
for natty still. I'd be fine to do that in O, in coordination with
Debian. Jonathan, what time scale did you have in mind?
