[08:43] <acheronuk> sitter: does this break ABI in frameworks?

[08:45] <acheronuk> sitter: <a href="" title=""></a>
[08:59] <sitter> acheronuk: assuming activitiesmodel is in fact a public
class: yes
[08:59] <sitter> adding a const anywhere changes the call signature
[08:59] <sitter>
<a href="" title=""></a>
[09:00] <sitter> You cannot...For existing functions of any type:change
its signature. This includes:changing any of the types of the arguments
in the parameter list, including changing the const/volatile qualifiers
of the existing parameters (instead, add a new method)

Confirmation that this is either an issue that needs to be sorted, or
one where there is no impact is appreciated.

Apologies. I did not see the discussion on kde-frameworks-devel, or the
