I guess that this is good for KDE 4.5.0, unfortunately it is bad 
for Slackware, because I am going on holiday end of this week, and by 
now am fed up with endless rebuilds of 4.5.0 packages, only to find 
that it was all in vain because you are re-tagging the release.
Oh well, I'll wait for 4.5.1. That'll keep me sane.
