Agreed. I think, kdebase is fine. And kcmrand isn't really that huge. And as a
matter of fact, I'm puzzled that the one commiting "this kcontrol module shows the 
current configuration of the IEEE 1394 bus." into kdebase without any public discussion
I've noticed (while reading mail very fast after returning from vacation :) is talking
about kdebase getting bigger.
