This is a heads up for everyone compiling kdevelop4 regurlarly. I'm
going to commit the change on thursday evening (about 45 hours from
now). Matt already announced we're not following kdelibs soversion on
k-c-d, so I'm taking that and the lack of reponses so far as an "ok".

Anybody feel free to object and explain your reasoning.

And the real reason I'm notifying everybody in advance, is that you're
going to need to remove all libxxx.so* from your builddir/lib directory
and of course also from installdir/lib. So a build will take some time.


Go to a movie tonight.  Darkness becomes you.
