Unless I'm mistaken we only have to keep compatibility with the first
release we do. Currently its not clear when kdevelop and thus
kdevplatform will see its first public release, but I doubt we'll have a
problem keeping compatibility once we do. Those are not exactly
complicated modules and I think also already pretty clean.

I'm not a maintainer for kdegames, but I think both are needed for games
in playground and/or extragear. Though the kdegames libraries actually
don't maintain BC - at least according to the games devs :)
