Yes, I see this, too. I originally planned to get it working as a drop-in 
replacement, but I see now that it's not possible. And even if kaboodle 
worked unmodified, I cannot promise that any hypothetical application out in 
the wild will work.

So, I'll implement a new Class. However, I'm reluctant to calling it 
"KPlayObjectV2" or something like this. How are peoples feelings about 
namespaces? I remember there were thoughts about moving most "K" classes into 
a "KDE" namespace with KDE4, so what about calling the new class 
"KDE::PlayObject", and the Factory "KDE::PlayObjectFactory"?

Is there any possibility to versionate symbols in a C++ class library?
