I would go with 4.0 for the platform (kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase/runtime). 
I'm not sure about the dependencies in kdesupport. Who is releasing them?

For the rest of the desktop I think we should go with a version number 
3.something, because we have scheduled more pre-releases and the final 
release will only be in December. To keep things easy I would suggest to sync 
the libs version with the version of the rest with the final desktop release, 
so that the first stable release of the desktop would be something like

I guess we should release new versions of the libraries together with the 
desktop, so that we always have a consistent set.
