Well, have a look into kde's versions in Core: 

# rpmver 3.5.3-0.2.fc5 3.5.2-0.2.1.fc5
3.5.3-0.2.fc5 is newer

# rpmver 3.5.3-0.2.fc5 3.5.2-0.2.fc5.1
3.5.3-0.2.fc5 is newer

Now tell me how to recompile a package from the same sources, but with
small local modifications (e.g. for testing a patch addressing a bug).

3.5.3-0.3.fc5 would do, but that's not a solution to the problem,
because it's the V-R being reserved for the next official update.
