And it eases up porting from kdelibs4support but not having to change all
the includes.

I was acutally thinking about the same, would mean the headers are
though. Additionally the old headers could have some #pragma message
so it tells people while building.

The argument against was that whatever would use "the correct" wouldn't
against older frameworks...which in the cases I know about wouldn't be a
because they depend on master anyway, so bumping the min version in their
find_package(..) wouldn't be a problem.
