Hi Ariya,

I will simply note that several current customers of Qt Software have yet to 
migrate to Qt Extended 4.4 and are still developing plans for doing so.  This 
move will preclude them from benefiting from crucial improvements to the 
browser engine without a correspondingly large move to a new version of Qt 
Extended/Qtopia.  Technologies like Squirrelfish and the improvements made to 
the Javascript engine are proportionally very important for such customers.
