But as it is now it would recompile everything that includes kdeversion.h
when cmake runs (which is already often enough), while if this is updated
whenever svn up is done, then after _every single update_ we'll have to
recompile everything that includes kdeversion.h? That's deadly.
I'm against this, it would kill productivity.
