AFAIR it was also about the small user group that kpovmodeller has. I think 
that the question is how specialized an application in a KDE module should 
be. kdegraphics is released as one package, but I am pretty sure that only a 
very small percentage of people who want kdegraphics also want kpovmodeler.
The other apps are relevant for "normal" desktop use (fax, scan, file 
viewing,....), but kpovmodeler is only relevant for people wanting to make 3D

which relies on FOSS (GPL ) software..."
