Then it should probably be put into kdelibs/cmake for KDE4?

I think I've seen the topic come up from time to time, even longer ago than 
4-5 weeks. That's part of what motivates ecm, as you say. I don't think it's 
a reason to rush a release out.

Without seeing his post, it's hard to know if it's suitable for ecm or 
should be in cmake in that particular case.

Presumably that's the Qt4 based version? That doesn't need ecm anymore. 
David removed the requirement with commit  
ecda35817ddaec8381a34e9bcc4d9c722bf528c7 (possibly in response to Sune?), 
and you can see that it never really used anything from ecm anyway as 
nothing significant from there is copied in.

Still no reason to rush a release imo.
