Just as for kdelibs, I really don't understand the purpose of sabotaging the
work of those people who want to implement features in 4.x. Doing this in
parallel to Qt-5-based long-term development is exactly what git (or any half-
decent SCM, really) has branches for. It would not be the same people working
on the 2 branches.

The kdelibs freeze has sabotaged several important features distributions have
been waiting for for years, e.g. KSecrets (which was abandoned in non-working
stage after the kdelibs patches were rejected). We should not repeat the same
mistake for kde-workspace!
