There's no big problems in breaking on trunk, untill kde 4.2 freeze time.
The discussion about api/abi breakage i'd like to have during kde code
sprint concerns on the stable branch and during beta/rc phase, having 
attention to stable distros, e.g. the ones who want to use our packages.

I mean i don't like to think we have to implement every time new
functionalities during beta/rc, i'd expect more to stabilize the code instead.
Moreover we can't base our work always on trunk, as far as our final product 
concerns. Maybe I'm wrong, but i can see the mess digikam does on mandriva
2009.0. It is almost unusable and to get new betas we need to backport
things from kdegraphics trunk, that's ok for developers not for final users.
So more attention to stable distros should be taken IMHO.
I don't mean we don't have to add new features of course, but maybe we
should work on branches once we have a beta out, and going on trunk for
future releases. Of course it's a nonsense (always imo) releasing a new stable
based on kdegraphics trunk since it has not been released yet....

My 2€ cents.
