There might be other apps using those slaves, but:

Installing the slaves if necessary is the task of the packagers. The 
user doesn't (or at least shouldn't) have to worry about it. Even SuSE 
in the meantime splits the cvs modules into smaller RPMs. So IMO this 
is no valid reason for the slaves to reside in kdebase. If the slaves 
are needed then the user's distribution installer will automatically 
install kdepim-kioslaves or even kdepim-kio_smtp, kdepim-kio_pop3, etc.

And of course the slaves will always be backwards compatible. We just 
want to have the option to improve the slaves for KDE PIM 3.3 in case 
that should be necessary.
