One more thing:

The reason I requested a new module was that I want still to be part of 
KDE 3.2 while reducing the size of the kdegraphics package. KPovModeler 
increased the size of kdegraphics significantly, which will not get 
better when we finished our object and texture libraries.

And that will only be possible with a new module that will be released 
with KDE and not with kdeextragear.

Now it's up to the release dudes to decide.
