I think the idea is to reduce the incompatabilities between the application 
and a possible KDE4.0 version of it, thus requiring less porting.

That's why I orginally asked about adding @deprecated.
However I no longer think this is a good idea. The method in question is not 
deprecated and even its other variant might not be present in KDE4, heck not 
even the class it is in.

So I will just remove KDE4 or BIC change related comments if necessary to add 
API documentation.

Btw, would you like me to CCMAIL kde-core-devel on commits to kdelibs or is it 
sufficient to add the DOX: markup?
