Being involced in the Q stack, I have to concur here. All those release cycles
are not aligned and it's very unlikely that they'll ever be aligned. I'd end
up having code for several versions of the DeviceKit-* just like I did in the
KDE3 era with HAL. I'd prefer not go through this again if we can avoid it.
