Beeing a developer myself (not mythtv), I see it like as long as
MythTV is pre-1.0, it's considered pre-release software, and when you
use pre-release software, you should be prepared to upgrade some
dependencies along the way. If we were at 1.21 however, this kind of
upgrade should be held until a major release (ie. 2.0). If using Qt4.4
has valuable benefits over any previous versions, I say go for it.
