Perhaps then instead of calling it BC Fridays, we should call it API Fridays.

I mean that there shouldn't be major changes or additions to kdelibs except on 
Fridays.  It's really annoying to update part of cvs and  find that I have to 
recompile kdelibs again.

It'd be nice if kmail reported kdelibs and kmail as non-misspelt words, btw ;)
