do we want to keep the out-of-source-only requirement ?

Indeed, as much as I like arbritray restrictions on developers, I think we 
should leave it as out-of-source required.  More or less for all the reasons 
Jaison mentioned:

*) Clean separation between source and compiled results.
*) Only one style of build should mean that it will always work.

kdesvn-build has a few subroutines to deal with forcing modules that don't 
natively support srcdir != builddir to work.  Now that Qt 4 supports this, 
it's looking like I can remove that code once I remove KDE 3 support in the 
distant future.
