The package itselve is build as kde3-kaffeine (kde3) and kaffeine (kde4) 
when you use openSUSE >= 11.2 (when kde4 in openSUSE gets useable). It 
doesn't matter what name the Project on the OBS or the Website.

When the KDE4 version has nearly the same features, the window can be 
reduced to a acceptable size (it's much to wide in the minmum size) and 
the users do not ask for the kde3 version.

openSUSE 11.1 had no kde4 kaffeine
openSUSE 11.2 was shipped with 1.0pre2, I wouldn't call this version 
openSUSE 11.3 included 1.0pre3, isn't this reason enought for a update?

so 11.4 is the only openSUSE we can discous about the need of a packman

It's the "normal" version.
