Yes, most definately.  If we want KDE libraries to be used more generally as a 
supplement to Qt, then we should work to make a Qt-only developer feel right 
at home with kdelibs.  I think this includes changing KDE4 to Qt4 style 
includes as well as breaking up the libraries.  I'm also against thiago's 
namespacing proposal, unless someone can layout some hidden benefit that is 
currently missing.
