Is kdelibs/kdecore meant to stay? Or will it dissolve in something like 
kdecomponents or whatever was discussed at aKademy last year?

I came up with "kdecore" when thinking about module specific library modules 
and having in mind the thread about "KDE Core Libraries" Thiago started. 
"kdecore" would nicely go together with a "kdecorelibs" on the line of 
"kdepim" and "kdepimlibs".
