What I don't like about the kdeextragear idea is that each module consists of 
a number of applications of any type and completely unlinked. The size 
argument in kdegraphics still persists for kdeextragear: A user who wants to 
install a small application in kdeextragear-2 doesn't want to download and 
install kpovmodeler. I don't think packagers will ever distribute such 
modules as a whole and that means that they are probably never be 

I would suggest a separate module.
