The changes are deep enough that we can build tests with a lot more ease.
You don't have to turn KDE4_BUILD_TESTS on to be able to run a single
Right now, if you're working on a single class, you probably want to run
one test or two. But you have to turn ALL tests on, for the whole module.
Quite frankly, I consider the ability to build tests individually to be an
incentive to new developers, not a deterrent. If at all, new contributors
are held back by the time it takes to build all the tests in module.
I know I am, and I'm hardly a new contributor.

Yes: the uncomfort of Kubuntu users will be the comfort of everyone else.
Kubuntu must have an "updates" repository or something. Someone must know
how to create a package...
