On the contrary; I would like KDE_FOO for kde4 so that we will NOT have
to convert it all from KDE4_FOO to KDE5_FOO when comes kde5.
Assuming we keep the same build system, why should everyone have
to convert all the buildsystem files?
We had Makefile.ams for kde1, kde2 and kde3, and we didn't need to go
crazy with search-replace at each new version.
Hardcoded version numbers always bite back.
