No one is forcing us to move everything from QWidgets to QML.
I think that the transition to QML will be slow and  smooth: we should
continue to use QWidgets on existing applications/UIs while new
applications should use QML. Anyway we have a chance to break binary
compatibility so we have to increase our version number.
Personally I see some needed tasks for kdelibs:
* Splitting logic and UI (ex: removing QWidgets dependencies from kio)
* Splitting kdeui in 3 different libraries: kdecoreui (will contain
KIcon, etc...), kdewidgetsui (QWidget based code) and kdeclarativeui
(new QML based code).
* libplasma2
* Moving away KHTML from kdelibs

I think we should create some pages on the wiki as we already did for

Davide Bettio.
