This matches my own experience fully.

I never managed to compile kdebindings on my own. Not once! Most of the time
I got different error messages from update to update. And I tried for a long 
time, very frequently. My motivation was that it could help me to access an
"easier than C++" way of learning to program for KDE. But man, if the thingie
doesnt build, I'm lost. 

First I thought that it is just bad luck, and that the last commits fixed my
last problem but maybe introduced a different one. I tried to dko without 
distcc and ccache, I made clean repeatedly. But no luck.

When I asked in #kde-devel/IRC that gave no big motivation: most said they 
hadnt compiled kdebindings since very long time "because it never builds"...

I'd stil love to see a well working kdebinding module.

I think the time is maturing quickly were it could be big bonus to have (not
only because of Aarons kicker/plasma effort -- there are people massively going 
for non-C++ languages on many fronts to see, and we should be able to utilize
that fresh new blood for KDE).
