Sincerely, I never noticed it. I use 3.1 on my laptop and the config files
were copied from the CVS HEAD there, and it worked without problem. So did 
KMail when CVS HEAD didn't want to start due to the kbuildsyscoca crashes 
some days ago.
But OK, I can accept that backwards compatibility is not always possible, or
hard to achieve at it may not worth to do it.
