Future frameworks releases

Boost is essentially equivalent to KF5:

   - lots of libraries
   - some depend on others, some don't
   - some libraries get updated almost every release, others are hardly

Boost includes all libraries (except if they are retired entirely) and bump
version for all libraries at the same time.

Is KF5 really that different? that special?

IMHO KF5 should follow the same rules Boost has been using for years. They
seem to work :-?
