I wanted to discuss the KDE 4 integration as well.  I don't mind if the 
KDE team maintains the class for KDE 4 (if they really want to and are 
not simply afraid to interact with the cdbs maintainers, I hope).  But 
it would be better to keep the paths consistent.  It is useful to be 
able to do ls /usr/share/cdbs/1/class or the like.

(In general, it would have been helpful to tell the cdbs maintainers 
about that.  I only found out about this while browsing Sune's FOSDEM 
slides.  Good thing I didn't invest much time yet writing a built-in 
class yet.)

Also, Ubuntu is shipping /usr/share/cdbs/1/class/kde4.mk. 
Unfortunately, all emerging packages for KDE 4 applications are now 
going to be incompatible.  Is anyone in discussions with Ubuntu about that?
