    I've been suggested to move the discussion to kde-buildsystem, but I
understand that changing kdelibs should not be taken lightly. I think
you're telling me this so we don't break backwards compatibility. is
that so? if so, we can use the second version, wich leaves the default
behaviour as the current one.

(Not so) Random fortune:
merging with svn seems to always be an "Oh good Lord! We have to MERGE!" event
