OK, so that was the problem. I had a too old 0.0.2, and when I updated it, it
became 0.0.3 so kdelibs would not pick it up before manual investigation and
clearing the corresponding line in the cache.
See? None of this would have happened if install dirs were not versionned.
But yes, it would also not have happened if the version number had been
increased when this new thing had been added to it, I agree.

This sounds sub-optimal, compared to "picking up the greatest version number".

OK. At *this* point in time I'm not sure it's worth the trouble, I mean not
until this stuff is officially released and used by other projects. But it's your

I very much want them to be released together with a common revision number,
anything else is dependency hell, release hell, and version numbering hell.
But I'll expand on that thought in the right thread later.
