Actually if we don't care much about errors for people updating old checkouts
in those directories, we can easily move stuff around modules without duplicating 
the history on the server (we did that with kdenonbeta too, except when there
were separate releases of the kdenonbeta code).

Yeah, I agree with that. Numbered modules make it hard to find something.
I don't see a problem with one big module either.

The problem with the kdeplayground-multimedia etc. idea is that we're going
to have a *lot* of modules (basically tripling the number of modules we already have,
if we do kdeplayground-multimedia and kdereview-multimedia !!!).
I would really be easier for everyone IMHO to stick to one module (well two:
kdeplayground and kdereview).
