Perhaps there is a little confusion:

apples, bananas and efaq depends on lib/div, which where originally 
developed by the Extension Coordination Team (Elmar Hinz) to bring new 
art of extension development into TYPO3 4.x.

blog_example depends on extbase/fluid, which is a backport from FLOW3.

So, to be on the safe site for future development, you should use 
extbase/fluid, because extensions developed with this base will only 
need minor modifications to run later on within TYPO3 5.x (at least that 
  is the official statement ;-) )

Actually there is no kickstarter for extbase/fluid extensions, but you 
can use the existing one, at least for the table and TCA creation (then 
copying in the right directories). Actually you can look at blog_example 
and addresses (both in forge) for implementation examples.

Hope this helps.
