Kopete and KDevelop. Kopete is because we'll be breaking the API for  
KDE 4.1 (most likely). We may adopt the generic lib versioning at  
that point though. KDevelop has tons of new libraries which, in the  
opinion of us kdevelop developers, don't deserve the generic lib  
version because, to us, it implies a maturity that they don't have yet.
