I've been procrastinating.

We can't do the same thing as with kdelibs. Simply because those were split 
into separate repositories where masters are qt5/kf5-based. KActivities is 
already in a separate repository.

If we decide to wait after 4.13, the next release of Plasma will have to use a 
non-master-based kactivities which I'm not sure is a good idea.

Naturally, I am open to suggestions.
