okular is a rewrite of kpdf.
ligature is kviewshell just renamed.
So they both really are in kdegraphics.
I have no clue what kuickshow uses (I assume kviewshell?) But as long as we 
have that same functionality someplace I don't really care what they throw 
in. kuickshow is indispensable IMO :)
I'm actually not even using the monolithic packages.(I use gentoo's split 
Really no matter where we throw these users can gain access to them.
putting them one or both in KEG isn't really going to harm anyone.
another way of deciding is could either project benefit from a release cycle 
different from KDE?
I know the ligature people have already stated that the KDE release cycle is 
perfect for them so how about okular?
