That was one of my main interrogations about the idea of having several 
repositories as well. Also, how do you handle backtracking ? Do you have to 
maintain a table saying 'version [N1-M1] of kdegraphics need version [N2-M2] 
of kdelibs' ? That pretty much defeats the idea of a version control system, 
unless I'm missing something.
