If you don't want to guarantee BC then it does not belong into 
kdesupport IMO. kdesupport contains dependencies for kdelibs and all of 
those really should keep BC. If you do not want to guarantee BC then 
keep it in a private location, do not install it anywhere and have 
everybody who wants to use it copy it. You could move it to kdesdk 
(without installing it).
