Which is exactly why I started this discussion.

Frankly, I don't care if kdelibs changes. Because it doesn't change in an 
incompatible way. But I do care about the bugfixes it gets and the fixes and 
enhancements we need or want for kdepim as well.

And I dare allege there will be more than zero changes in kdelibs needed for 
kdepim after KDE 4.0.
