So why was all the KDE 3.5 code chucked out the Window when they moved to 4?

No it was not. That statement is pure nonsense.

KDE 4.0 retained easily 80-90% of the KDE 3.5 code. One of the larger parts of the 3.5 code that was scrapped and rewritten was kicker and kdesktop, and that was hardly more than 1-2% of the code. So a far way from chucking all code out the window. Large parts of the code was virtually unchanged, only adapted to changes in the underlying Qt libraries.
