Well, most libraries outside the kde*libs space are only used
within their module, thats why BC is lesser of a concern here. 

libkonq is
an edge case, it is used in quite some other modules, on the other side, due
to the anything that depends on *workspace* must require the exact version
anyway, making an exception for libkonq doesn't make that much sense to me.

any other opinions?
