And you're not griping about kdevelop's dependency on kdesdk for certain 
things why? Sorry, but this argument simply doesn't hold up. if kfilereplace 
is moved, kdewebdev will depend on kdeutils for full functionality, just like 
kdevelop depends on kdesdk for full functionality. This is of course assuming 
that kfilereplace is already an optional dependency for quanta, or would be 
made one if it was moved.
