Probably the same as my libplasma PackageKit integration from GSoC 2011: in 
the digital nirvana and/or in distro patches. :-(

Just as for kdelibs, I really don't understand the purpose of sabotaging the 
work of those people who want to implement features in 4.x. Doing this in 
parallel to Qt-5-based long-term development is exactly what git (or any half-
decent SCM, really) has branches for. It would not be the same people working 
on the 2 branches.

The kdelibs freeze has sabotaged several important features distributions have 
been waiting for for years, e.g. KSecrets (which was abandoned in non-working 
stage after the kdelibs patches were rejected). We should not repeat the same 
mistake for kde-workspace!
