This is allowed.  We never made claims that kdelibs would be forward 
compatible.  You can't compile applications against 4.0.1 and expect it to 
run on 4.0.0 for any reason.  The only question is whether applications 
compiled against 4.0.0 work when run on kdelibs 4.1 and 4.0.1.

Now, policy for 4.0 branch is that you don't add code unless it fixes a bug 
(which it does in this case IMO) but that is something to think about.
