If it is possible to work on KDE with the software as it comes with your
distro the entry barrier to development is much lower.

If it is required, sure.
If it's not required, I don't want to waste peoples time by requiring them to
Until now it wasn't required.
Dirk Mueller complained strongly when requiring cmake 2.4.3 because it was so
much effort to get the Coverity build updated.
Bill Hoffman from Kitware stopped the Nightly Builds of kdelibs he did on one
of his own machines because keeping up with the changing requirements of KDE
was too much work.
Same for me. If I come home after work and have 2 or 3 hours to do something
on KDE, do svn up and notice that I can't work on what I wanted to do because
of new requirements I usually won't be able to work on this for that day.
If we want to get KDE4 out before Qt5 is released ;-) we should try to make
developing for it not harder than it has to be.
And, maybe most important, if we require a newer version of CMake, this needs
to be brought up on k-c-d or k-b-s ;-) and then announced with at least one
week warning period.
And the required version in FindKDE4Internal.cmake HAS to be adjusted
