Qt4 apps cannot be compiled against Qt5. They need to be specifically ported over. This will be a process that will take some time.

I'm not even sure if KDE will be ready with 4.11. I think that's the plan, and a lot needs to be rewritten in kwin - no idea how much work needs to be done with other packages.

Obviously. That's why we have been demanding that developers religiously add the correct slot to their Qt deps. The new Qt5 modules are in the qt overlay and have slot :5.

No, that's not the plan. KDE Frameworks 5 (as it will be called) will be based on Qt5. KDE SC 4.x will remain Qt4-based.
