KXmlRpc is a namespace and KXmlRpc::Client is one of its classes.
Oh, it's in kdepimlibs.  My mistake… :-(

I can fix master, but AFAIK there is not going to be a KDE 4.14.4, so if I fix something in a
KDE 4 library, when can it be released?

If I fix Dr Konqi, maybe it can be released, as an application, in KDE Applications 14.12.1,
but I would like to be sure of that.

Cheers, Ian W.
