one problem, kbugbuster also seems to use the smtp ioslave
as does the bug reporting stuff. would it not be better for
that one alone to go into kdelibs and the rest into kdepim?

i don't think its worthwhile for imap4 or pop3 to get into
kdebase/kdelibs personally as only kmail really needs them.
i assume that korn and kbiff (if they both exist?) should
also be using the slaves at some point, so they'll also need
a kdepim move.

fully agreed :)
just thought i'd get the thought out into the air :)
