And it should be possible for Gnome/Sawfish/Icewm/Blackbox/fvwm/whatever

those two slaves. Yes, I know. The distributors should ... blablabla.
What about people who prefer to compile from source? After all KDE

slave in kdebase you force those people to download the huge kdebase
tarball just for the tiny POP3 and IMAP ioslaves:
kde/3.1> du -s kdebase/kioslave/pop3/ kdebase/kioslave/imap4/ kdebase/
