I doubt that. KDE3 was based on a rather old and outgrown paradigm,
and that was the main reason for rewriting KDE4 from scratch. Now
after that is done, it will be just evolution for the forseeable
future. AFAICT, devs are now happy with the codebase design, and do
not feel the need to rewrite it again. It will be some time until this
codebase becomes obsolete. ;-)
