Re: KDE vs. GNOME on F10

KDE would generally consider it a bug if that happened (API compat broken by a non-major* update), unless it was an interface that already had a big "BC/SC not guaranteed" warning label.

(* major = e.g. KDE3 -> KDE4)

There may be situations in which such a break would be done anyway, but there would have to be a strong argument why such change is so critical as to warrant a compatibility break.
