Most packagers builds standalone packages for all of those anyway so I whats 
your point. The clue with having different modules are to group programs 
which makes sens to keep together, ether for dependency issues or area of 

kdesdk - tools to help development, which kompare, umbrello, kcachegrind and 
Cervisia does. 

kdeutils - misc utility programs, like kcalk, kcharselect, kfloppy etc. And  
KFileReplace fits perfect with those.

If you are looking for dependency problems, I suggest find the real ones. Like 
kdesdk depending on kdepim at compiletime. (My last CVS build was some time 
ago, 23/9). I think it was KBugBuster  or Kbabel who wanted 
libkcal/resourcecalendar.h. The compile bombed when it tried to use the 3.2 
version. May be ok now, some time since I did update.
