automoc in kdesupport-issue

several weeks ago we (me and Matthias) moved automoc from kdelibs to 
kdesupport so that the automoc-functionality ( #include "foo.moc" and all the 
rest happens magically) can be used also by non-KDE apps, as e.g. phonon, 
akonadi, etc..

This works so far, but we kept automoc in kdelibs so it could be used 
optionally in case kdesupport wasn't current. We made automoc from kdesupport 
mandatory a few weeks ago, so the first release which requires automoc from 
kdesupport was 4.1RC1.
It seems this didn't go very smoothly.
There are some complaints from people who couldn't build KDE because they 
didn't have automoc (from kdesupport). We haven't done an official separate 
automoc release yet.

How should this be handled ?
(I would like if kdesupport would be released together with the rest of KDE, 
or at least be tagged, so later on it is easier to find a matching version)
