that does answer my original question well. thank you.

i'm still unhappy about this breaking the API freeze. kconfig is a core part 
of kdelibs and having things still being mucked around and changed at this 
point, post-freeze is highly unusual. my push back is an attempt to respect 
that freeze, something that is important to getting 4.0 ready to go and 
something which those working on kconfig have shown little regard for (on the 
plus side, kconfig has seen numerous improvements; it's not a zerio sum 

given that there are *no* users of this making it SC, i'm personally ok with 
the change happening, but those of your working on kconfig really need to get 
into release mentality here.
