That is only a temporary situation. All the changes in the 4.9 branch are
periodically merged into
the 4.10 branch by David, but I guess that does not resolve this issue.

Ahh... I was not aware of this was a requirement though I still do not
understand why we have started insisting on forward compatibility.
Regardless, I will fix this since it is only a matter of wrapping the code
with #ifdef.

It is not a new feature. It is a bug fix. It is needed to fix the directory
filter plugin for Konqueror.
