I need some opinions/clarifications regarding the issue in the subject.
Last sunday I asked a few core KDE people in N7Y about importing
KCachegrind into kdesdk. There was no objection to this, but I'm not
really sure about the consequences of this step.

Benefits of course would be more i18n, better availability in KDE, and perhaps
(hopefully) some fixes regarding style guide and other rough edges by other

KCachegrind is a KDE application, but it is bound in now way to the
development process of KDE applications only. The data visualized
could be produced on any machine and with programs written in any
language (currently it's bound to the Valgrind skin Calltree).
Does it make sense then to put it into kdesdk?

I want KCachegrind to compile on KDE 3.0, too. Is it possible to make
separate releases able to compile on older libraries out of KDE CVS (I suppose 
with cvs2dist). Weren't there some issues here?

Thanks for comments,
