A little bit of a hen and egg problem, no? We can't freeze the kdelibs API
without having serious application development. That includes all of KDE4 

And really: I can't take those serious that claim they can't start KDE4 
development unless kdelibs is frozen because it's a moving target. If the
2-3 weeks between kdelibs updates are too short for you, then well: branch
out of trunk, rely on kdelibs4_snapshot at 491000 and finish what you want to
do. And if you're done, merge back into trunk. It's no magic, but of course
you can't continue in the same way as you did during the long KDE3 API freeze.

Greetings, Stephan
