I'll definitely look at doing this.  Another help would be to say that  
French manual will only compile with kdelibs >= ??? (However, this  
would not only require stating the correct version, but also having a  
way to make the inclusion of that line in CMakeList.txt dependent on  
kdelibs version - I don't know if that is possible.)
