True ;)

True, too :)

Nothing against that the apps which are shipped with any KDE package in the release should
respect some rules, be maintained, don't be duplicated (uh, shouldn't say that I guess) and so on,
very true, and very important.

But I think (beside that the thread you opened for pure menu reorganisation is now taken over for 
kde package reorganisation) this doesn't lead to the conclusion that splitting out apps to extragear and
forcing them to release on their own is a good idea, like some people promote here ;)
