The latest 5.13.4-2 update removes breeze-kde4 package but this package in fact doesn't provide any KDE4 libs (it links to frameworkintegration) but Qt4 styling plugins.

As long as there are Qt4 packages (there are quite a few of them including clementine, keepasx and so on) in Arch repo removing breeze-kde4 will resultin ugly and non-uniform look.

An AUR package as a fallback can be provided but providing official support for breeze-kde4 is the reasonable choice to keep providing uniform desktop look for KDE Plasma users who use Qt4 apps in the official repos.
This task depends upon

Unfortunately the qt4 style can't be built without KDE4 libs, which we are dropping. So it will have to be an AUR package. Since this was previously a split package, someone needs to write it from scratch though.
