You guys sound like KDE 4 is going to be released tomorrow. It has been 
valgrinded from time to time, of course. Even if Dirk just found a memory 
leak a few days ago :-) 

The API is mature enough for the uses that came up until now, which is already 
quite good. Unit tests are available, and a couple of example programs as 

It uses cmake for building. Other than the fact that until now it uses a sane 
naming scheme (provided that we are in 2006, and file systems that are case 
sensitive are standard), I do not see any technical reason that should 
prevent it from going in. I am fine with reverting to a 1992 MS-DOS naming 
scheme as requested (excuse my sarcasm :-), if it is wanted for consistency. 

As a feature, a number of people have expressed interest in having it.
