Rest assured, things are backward compatible, but not forward, ie, apps 
compiled against kde-4.2.x run are fine on kde-4.3.x, just not necessarily 
vice-versa.  That's the abi issues we're warning about.

Further, this is a case where a vast majority of known bugfixes are found in 
the version upgrade.

There are also other mitigating factors (upstream and downstream), but I'd 
prefer this not be the time or place to go into that.
