I don't think we need a strict ban. I think the problem is that the kde 
bindings release schedule is unavoidably slightly behind the KDE libraries 
release schedule. However, the overall KDE release schedule doesn't take this 
into account.

Certainly we didn't need the KDE 4.4 release to be branched off from the trunk 
a month before the actual release, while we are right in the middle of trying 
to sort out kdebindings.
