Aurélien, I am writing regarding
One thing, about deploying the kmessagewidget (and similar things) in
kdelibs. If it's part of kdelibs 4.7 or something, apps that support
kdelibs < 4.7 would have to fork it (unless distro backports given
classes to previous kdelibs but this it very bad idea and technically
and coordination-wise). How to solve that? I am
thinking about releasing additions to kdelibs as separate libraries
like etc. and then merging only in 5.0.

Perhaps there's already solution I am not aware of.
