Exactly ;) It's hard enough to actually keep eye on your stuff to keep it maintained, fix bugs,
implement some wishs and more. Why should I need to take care of release schedules, i18n & docs
freezes and all this? I still think the current situation with bundled KDE desktop with applications releases
is a good thing. If the splitting makes probs, that more a issue of the build system, and perhaps for choosing
the new one in KDE 4, there should be an eye on making it easy possible to build parts of the modules on their own,
or to be able to introduce a extragear with "makefiles" per group, to emulate the current modules we have by still
be able to build  each app subdir on it's own.
