- They're not really part of a KDE SDK, they're general purpose development
tools. So you might say "big deal, we just rename kdesdk to kdevelopmenttools
- In order to pacify users and not let stuff like kdewebdev and KDevelop
depend on all of kdesdk, packagers have to split them out of the module
- There's no real benefit for those applications being tied to the KDE release
cycle. For KCacheGrind, it's even suboptimal - it should rather be synced
- We'd reduce the size of a main KDE module and stop a long standing trend
towards the exact other direction.

In what way is developing in KEG not proper? You get to have your own release
schedule, yet retain the benefit of KDE's build system and access to KDE's
