Ian's point was (I guess) that _any_ lirbrary which belongs to the public API 
of KDE cannot be allowed to break binary compatability and that the 
respective maintainer should be asked to revert the change.

This way around is not guranteed, an application built agains 3.3 should be 
able to run on 3.4, of course applications using the 3.4 API might not work 
using 3.3
