That shouldn't be a problem, I'm more than willing to look up and learn 
the changes if and when needed.

Yes, I thought as much as well, but I wanted to ask anyways, since our 
opinions might differ, especially considering I am new to the project. :)

build the KF5 version then.
I'll put on my scuba diving gear and dive into it!
