I wasn't using KDE at the time, but I seem to remember that the
transition (library- and feature-wise) from 2.x to 3.0 was more 
of a continuation of the 2.x series with API rewrites (I think DCOP, KIO
etc etc were all introduced during the 2.x cycle). 
Considering that KDE 4.x has LOTS of new technologies and technical changes 
iMHO it's a bit of comparing apples and oranges. But then again... 
We'd bump into the discussion of 'was it wise to release 4.0... was it wise 
to create all that new stuff' again, which I'd like to avoid. 
(personal opinion as I'm using 4.1 right now: it definately was).
