Happy new year!
Two days ago I committed patches to Kamera in KDE trunk (4.7) that remove all usage of the kde3support libraries. (It seems that tsegdos had the same idea with KWalletManager.) All the changes I made were to elements of the GUI accessible without a camera. Due to this, I unfortunately was not able to remove the remaining usage of the Qt3Support libraries. If anybody with a USB-enabled camera wants to step up, they can have the satisfaction of knowing that they helped wean one more program off of deprecated libraries.🙂
On the subject of kde3support and qt3support, I saw some people wondering how many things still depend on it. Fortunately, it is easy to find this out using the “rdepends” feature of apt-cache. Here is the state of things in KDE 4.6:

The Qt3support list includes a lot of non-KDE apps, and most of the apps listed in the kde3support list also depend on qt3support, so I won’t bother posting that list.
