for apps like kicker that will see fairly large changes in KDE4 this will only 
make sense up to a point. eventually the code bases will be divergent enough 
that changes in branches/3.5 just won't make sense in trunk/

i noticed people have touched kde4/kdebase/kicker which i really wish they 
hadn't. if you had to run a KDE3 linked kicker for another month or two i 
doubt it would've been a cause of great consternation, but making changes in 
kicker right now really doesn't mesh with the schedule i've set out, much as 
with the kdepim people .. the only difference is that in my case i had the 
end of June as my 3.5 feature freeze (everything thereafter will be bug fixes 
or tweaks to things like default settings only) ... i plan to stick to that 
schedule, and i truly hope that changes made to kicker in the kde4 branch 
won't make that harder than necessary ... i'll live either way, it's just a 
matter of how efficiently i'll live ;)
