Basically, the minimal changes that happen are enough to stop me from 
committing changes in the same file since I can't "svn update" the file, 
because I don't recompile kdelibs often.  That will change though since it's 
getting closer to the release and I have to start testing that the app 
integrates with KDE.

However, changes in the API that affect virtually every .cpp file I have, even 
when the "core library APIs are frozen solid", are very irritating.  See

Oops :)  I'll fix that first thing tomorrow.

I think kdelibs should be ok now.
