We will have only one official buildsystem for KDE4.

In Málaga, we had decided for Scons. But cmake is progressing fast too. If 
cmake delivers and Scons doesn't, we'll use that. 

We haven't yet, but we'll eventually reach a point when we'll have to 
switch the official from unsermake to something else (or 
not). THAT's what application developers will have to maintain. Until 
then, they maintain files.

From that point forwards, any other buildsystems will be maintained out of 
trunk, by whoever wants to work on them.
