Run 'info libtool', if you want to know the reasoning.
There are basically 3 versioning schemes involved with each library:
- KDE version (doesn't matter in Makefile.am)
- libtool version (the one we're talking about)
- soname version (e.g. libfoo.so.x.y.z) (do NOT care about this one when using 

The libtool version consists of 3 parts:

3:0:2 means that it's interface 3, backwards compatible with 2 and 1 
(supposedly because no methods were removed, but only added), and it's 
implementation 0 of this interface, e.g. caused by major KDE releases with 
API changes. The next minor KDE release would then lead to 3:1:2, if sources 
are changed.
