You don't need a branch, you can just remove everything and tell people the
hash they can checkout if they're interested in kdelibs4 code.
Ideally we would have a maintained kdeexamples dir, but since we don't your
solution seems sensible.
Also ask sysadmins to move it to the "virtual" unmaintained module, though
maybe it is already.
