Hi all,
in the effort of make KDE packages build on the MeeGo obs, since the mobile 
profile is used there all use of deprecated functions comes immediately to 
surface, so is a quite good "debug" tool :)

trying to make kdeedu build (will post patches to it next days) I've found a 
strange thing in kdelibs:
the KParts/GenericFactory class is not marked as deprecated, but internally 
uses  KDEPrivate::ConcreteFactory that instead is deprecated and excluded from 
the build

right now i have this patch in the meego packages that kills it with an 

now the question is: is this correct? is genericfactory still supposed to 
exist or should be porte to use something diferent than ConcreteFactory?
