How are "Thiago's KDE Core Libraries" different from the rest of kdelibs? Do 
you consider the features of the rest of the kdelibs as not release-critical? 
How would we implement them then, in KDE 5?

I wouldn't have a problem with creating a new module kdepimlibs and put 
Akonadi and other PIM-related libraries there. But we have to come up with a 
concrete plan how we want to release this (and the rest of KDE 4) as soon as 

My current assumption is that we will do it in the same way as with previous 
releases, releasing the libraries and the core modules together.
