This is how my package started off, but than I didn't see the point of
having to maintain qt3-libs, qt3-designer, qt3-docs, qt3-examples.
The following are the install statistics of qt3:
Grand Total 45MB
I consider the libraries and their documentation shouldn't be
seperated and in this view it doesn't seem much of a sacrifies to
install designer and it's tools for an extra 14MB (qt3 with-the-lot)
in exchange for a much simpler package that is easy to maintain.
IMHO, I believe that we have gone overboard with the subdivision of some
packages for no good reason or added benefit.
