Qt 3.0 on KDE 2 ?

I'm running KDE2 on Linux, and do not want to upgrade to KDE3 for the time being.  However, I want to work on some software that uses the Qt3 libraries.  

Can I do this?  What will happen if I set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the Qt3 directory?  Will all other apps fail?

I guess this is a FAQ, but I can't find it answered anywhere.

Since no-one answered, I tried it.

FYI Qt3.0 programs will work on KDE2, and my existing programs don't fail.  But the exact program I'm
hoping to start work on (KDevelop) needed the KDE3.0 libraries as well.  So I can't do what I was hoping.

I'm requesting points be refunded.
