The question is only if kpovmodeler is big enough to justify a new 
module. Comparisons with other applications, especially calculating 
source files doesn't help much here.

I just don't want another move if the size of the program reaches a 
given threshold. We moved often enough already.
And the program _will_ grow. I am about to finish a plugin framework. I 
expect some big plugins like recursive plant generators or landscape 
generators. We need to add new POV-Ray 3.5 objects. There are several 
POV-Ray variants...
Don't consider only the current size.

Don't get me wrong. I can live with a move to kextragear but would 
suggest that such big applications get their own module.
