Just a thought on plugins

IMHO this is just a workaround for deeper problem.
kdeaddons does not have a dependency on kdepim development packages, only the  
KDE PIM related parts of it have.

Unfortunately packaging a SVN module into a single binary package is a _lot_ 
easier than to package only related parts (I guess each separation requires a 
configure+build run on its own)

Moving the current plugins to the main module will just delay the problem to a 
later release.

I think a submodule approach like in extragear, where the main module does not 
even have buildsystem files, would be a better goal for the long run.

Or maybe the new build system can help with this.
