it will deprecate some of the widgets and most (all?) of the layouts. all the 
rest of the API remains; looking at the classes that's probably 2/3rds 
remains as-is with the widgets/layouts moving to deprecated status.

having started to "kick the tires" of 4.4 i'm growing more confident that, at 
least for plasma, it will be a marked improvement.

i'd like to make an official request that 4.1 requires 4.4 =) without this i 
can't guarantee BC in libplasma, which is one of our goals for 4.1. getting 
WoC in is a pretty important step for us.
