I would like to see applications starting to use KF5 more and more. I agree
it can be a special case, but the 3 oldest projects I maintain (KDevelop
which is not in SC, KAlgebra and Kamoso) are mostly ready for action.

On the other hand, I don't see a reason for waiting more to adopt Qt5 on
our projects.
