If you put it into KDE/3.5 by that time, I have no problem with it (I'd ask 
the documentation writers / translators if they are ok with that plan). From 
my point of view the same argument than with kopete applies: the maintenance 
nightmare we get with updating versions in a service pack is comparable with
the maintenance nightmare with releasing and maintaining two distinct kdevelop 
versions at the same time. So pick the smaller problem - and if I understand 
the situation correctly it would mean to merge the kdevelop 3.4 branch into 
3.5 as soon as possible and not earlier than you can asure you'll meet the 
3.5.5 deadlines.

Greetings, Stephan
