I also prefer the KDE/x.y scheme. The reason is rather simple: if a popular 
application (let's say Amarok) which has a well-known version number that 
differs from the KDE version number decides to release together with the KDE SC 
one could simply do 2 tags: a.b for the application version and KDE/x.y for 
the corresponding KDE SC version.

In fact I wonder if it wouldn't be a good idea to do this for things that are 
part of the SC anyway, e.g. throw some tags for the KGpg version numbers in 
that scheme too.
