I use the KDE 4 version of Konversation for months now, firstly build right up 
from svn trunk. I never  had a problem with it, in it's current state it is 
rock solid, i am just missing the marker line thing.
So, it is labeled Alpha, but it never felt as such to me in everyday use.

Since I cannot cotton up with Quassel (i forced myself to use it 24h and was 
happy when they passed) i would use Konversation anyway. Neverthelesse, 
Konversation is still an easy to use application serving the basic use cases 
(connecting to irc, chatting, setting a profile and autojoin channels) with the 
advantages of a complete KDE4 integration and the KDE behind it as well.

I am not a friend of switching aplications too frequently, in this case i 
accompany Jonathan, it'd be one swap but will last for several releases.
