I think keeping the prefix is the superior option. For kdelibs,
kderuntime, kdeworkspace, etc. it really doesn't make any difference,
but for something like, say, Konsole the difference is important. If
one sees a branch named "4.6" in the Konsole repository, one is likely
to assume that it represents Konsole 4.6, when in fact it represents
Konsole 2.6 which is part of KDE SC 4.6. Keeping the "KDE/" prefix
helps clarify this.
