The pushback happened on k-c-d.
I think that's a valid list for us to discuss these types of issues.

I wasn't aware that we had made a decision.  I thought we were in discussion-mode.
In the meantime, dfaure's proposal (snippet below) looks good.  I think this is basically
what many of us have suggested but for some reason the simplicity got lost in the noise.
Should we also commit a tags/kdesupport-for-4.1/CMakeLists.txt file so folks can
easily build all of the kdesupport-for-4.1 stuff in 1 easy step?

Here's what I have in mind:
tags/kdesupport-for-4.1/phonon/    (svn cp'ed from tags/phonon/4.2.0)
tags/kdesupport-for-4.1/strigi/    (svn cp'ed from tags/strigi/strigi/0.5.11)
tags/kdesupport-for-4.1/qca/    (svn cp'ed from tags/qca/2.0.1)
Yes, just for convenience. Because nobody can remember 10 version numbers
that keep changing, for things he's not working on :-)
