Following Gary's tip about Qt 4.4.x being in hardy-backports already,
and fiddling with our PPAs so they use *-backports, and then wrestling a
bit with what versions of things we really truly *need* ... it builds!

Both bibledit 3.7 and bibletime 2.0 for Hardy are building in the main
Crosswire PPA now, and should be downloadable from there in under an hour.

NOTE: You will need to enable the hardy-backports repo in your
/etc/apt/sources.list file and update ( sudo apt-get update ) before you
will be able to install bibletime (and perhaps also bibledit).

Please let me know if these actually work for you :)
