?? Of course it is.
Aaron's question isn't about the complete layout of kdelibs (we would have to also
include "kdeFrameworkCore" and "kdeFrameworkGui" which is where most of
the stuff will be). "Components" (or "foundation", thanks Adam) is only the individual
classes that would make be reuseable independently, e.g. in qt-only programs.
See the blog linked in this thread.

So we would have the following libraries:
- KDEFoundationCore [collection of independent core classes]
- KDEFoundationGui [collection of independent gui classes, including widgets and the current kdefx]
- KDEFrameworkCore [including the network-transparency parts of kio]
- KDEFrameworkGui [including kparts, kutils, kwallet, kdeprint... kabc? knewstuff?]
- kjs, kxmlcore, khtml
- KDE3Support
