I made a work/kde4 branch of kdebindings yesterday, just before I read about 
the trunk becoming kde4. Oops.. bad timing. 

But I have a problem with the configure checks in the admin directories. The 
one I added with a 'svn pe svn:externals kdebindings' command was looking for 
Qt 3.3, and not Qt 4. When I tried to build kdelibs which has the correct KDE 
4 admin dir in work/kde4 it needed unsermake. 

As far as I know kdebindings doesn't build with unsermake. So is it possible 
to have a config check in kdebindings that looks for just Qt 4 in the same 
way the current one just looks for Qt 3, plus a KDE 4 version of kdelibs, or 
is unsermake required for KDE 4 development?
