That doesn't match my impression of Kubuntu. And which I just got confirmed by 
Riddell & Harald on IRC:

- Kubuntu 15.04 is shipping KF5.9
- It will very likely stay at that version (i.e. no updates), 
  b/c of the manpower/"paperwork" it takes to update frameworks
- SICs or other compatibility breaks in KF5 doesn't make it easier for them to 
transition to newer KF5 releases, obviously

Honestly, I don't see the reason why we should break compatibility with KF5.9, 
which appears to be an attractive target given that Ubuntu is shipping it.

And this is for one simple reason: If people need to compile/install 
dependencies to work on KDevelop5, it's always a hassle for them (cf. this 
thread). Let's just make it easier for them.

I'll add the compatibility code to kdev-clang if no-one else steps up to do it 
(it's really not a big deal).
