4.x is where I'm living/fighting/coding/writing now.
I'm sorry to say, in my mind next version of kdelibs is 4.8. And it will be 
based on the upcoming (not yet released) Qt 4.8.

Thinking about "frameworks" without having yet a decent idea of what will be 
Qt5 is impossible for me. But probably it's me, because I usually start coding 
after 10pm...
