The question for me is, do you really want to restrict yourself to the feature 
set of the KDE 4.0 release?

Looking back there were a lot of neat features added to kdelibs between KDE 
3.0 and now that were also useful to KDE PIM (e.g. KListViewSearchLine). How 
would you handle this? Add a copy of these features to libkdepim? Wouldn't 
this become a maintainance nightmare?

Just what came to my mind...
