Not to be equally rude, but have you actually tried 
kdebluetooth-0.3-1.fc10.i386 (the current version)?

Or do you just know how it works?
If so, can you tell me how you use it to establish a bluetooth connection?
Neither of the documents you cite seems to me to explain this.

As I mentioned, I did not install bluez-gnome 
because I wanted to see if and how KBluetooth4 works.
