It seems next ubuntu release (intrepid) will ship with KDE4 only.
About Gnash I have some questions:

        - What depends on KDE ? kde-gnash or only klash ?
        - If only klash, should we raname kde-gnash to qt-gnash ?
        - Do we want to allow building both qt3-gnash and qt4-gnash
          in a build tree or should it always be qt-gnash and depend
          on what's available on system ?
