I'm with Matt here, as much as i'd love a kompare on KDE 4.0 we began removing 
unmaintained games and not allowing new ones in kdegames quite a time ago, 
actually when the schedule said so, so if we had applied the the same rule to 
kdesdk, kompare would have been out of KDE 4.0 already months ago.
