If a new version makes it unbuildable, that would be an error, since
configure.py should "emulate" the highest version it knows about. For
example, if PyKDE was released for KDE 4.0.2 and you build against 4.0.3,
configure.py should treat it as 4.0.2 still. I'd have to look at
configure.py to see if that's still handled correctly.
In that case, extra/kde402 should already exist, and the h files from that
subdirectory would be used, so there shouldn't be a problem (if the new KDE
version maintains binary compatibility with the old)..
The most likely problem is that I forget to modify the manifest that's used to
assemble the tarball and the latest extra/kde* gets omitted.

Because there's no guarantee they're the same h files in each version, or a
new version won't introduce some problem that requires an h file be shipped
with PyKDE instead of accessed from KDE's includes.
The problems are either required h files that KDE doesn't install (and that
can be errors by minor version), or in one case (the only one, I think), a
file that needs to be modified to work with PyKDE..
