Please be aware that kimageio is stored in ksycoca and that removing it / 
changing it means that KDE3 applications will not be able to use the sycoca 
database of KDE4.

Depending on the plans for dealing with KDE3 / KDE4 compatibility, this may or 
may not be a problem.

Just wanted to make you aware of it.
