Ok, I agree entirely. Tarballs aren't really necessary, anyone
following our SVN could pick out a SVN revision to use from kdelibs.
We could declare what SVN revision number that amarok currently
compiles againist and just change that once every few weeks.

We would have to make the kdelibs revision very obvious with a
filename or something for marauding KDE hackers.

The alternative is to develop againist Krash and whatever future
snapshots are made. Does anyone following this stuff know if that
makes sense or not?
