It's harder with Plasma since it changes frequently and you have way more 
people working on it but with JuK I just leave my entire toolchain on trunk, 
and switch only JuK to the stable branch when I test, since I know the KConfig 
layout, cache layout, etc. hasn't changed. (Since I haven't changed it and no 
one else works on it :(
