Unlike kdenonbeta, the applications in kdeextragear are maintained, and unlike 
kdenonbeta, there is a limit on the number of applications in each 
kdeextragear module. I think that those two factors are sufficient to prevent 
it from becoming a mess.

For comparison, k3b in kdeextragear-1 has 234 source files.

The number 500 is of course rather arbitrary, if people prefer to have many 
seperate CVS modules one could put the treshold at 200.
