If there are concerns I won't commit until the release.

However, given the current progress, I would very likely only commit one to 
three classes per week anyway, as I sometimes have to check the 
implementation if I am not sure what it does or if the class has gained 
better methods after the initial documentation was written.

For example, KURL recommends in its constructors to use an empty URL and 
setPath when you want an URL based on a UNIX file path, while, given that I 
understood this correctly, the use of fromPathOrURL() is better but said 
method was introduced at 3.1 and not available at the time the constructor 
docs where written.
