I think I'd have to object to that in this case.  if you want to try 
experimenting in some later major release, fine, but not in a minor 
point release.

This comes mostly with my fedora packager hat on, where we parse the 
output of:
kde4-config --version
to describe the kde development platform version used and use that for a 
versioned minimal dependency on kde-runtime (or kdelibs as appropriate). 
  Updating just kdelibs without kde-runtime too, would break our 
(apparently naive) assumption.
