Errrrr, ever heard of something like "packaging" ? and that you have to keep 
the compatibility in KDE 3.x ? That means that if you update your kdelibs 
packages on your machine you're effectively *replacing* libvcard.so with 
libvcards.so*, which means all apps that linked to libvcards.so won't run 
anymore. You have to provide a copy of the lib in order to keep 
compatibility. As that isn't usual nor necessary you need to keep the library 
name, thus the binary compatibility. Everything else means it's only going to 
work for people who use Linux from Scratch or something.

Please take care of the kdelibs issues. Without a compatible kdelibs we can't 
get that working.

We're not a company, we just produce better code at less costs.
