Then you have a different sense of usability. Sorry, but I'm trying to
create a _stable_ app.

You pledge it based on what? This is ridiculous, you're planning to
reduce the quality of the app for the users, just because you're too
lazy to update _one_ of your development machines to a recent kdelibs.

Of course we could release a stable KDevelop 4.1 in 6 weeks. If I
finish the port at next weekend, then we need a few weeks of
stabilization and we're release-ready.
