I have another idea: maybe we could:
* have the non-devel stuff (which doesn't conflict) in /usr
* in the kdelibs3-devel package:
- create a /usr/kde3.5 (or whatever Gentoo uses, so existing packages should be 
prepared to deal with that setup already)
- symlink all the kdelibs3 stuff in /usr into there
- add the -devel stuff (which does conflict) as regular files (not symlinks)
- point kde-config (not kde4-config) to /usr/kde3.5

I wonder how workable that idea would be.
