Brrr. Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me. The interdependencies will be
way beyond the capabilities of distributions to handle.
Instead of having extra libraries that depend on multiple modules (like
koffice and kdeedu), we'd do better to extract the libraries from koffice
(like pigment) that would be useful to apps outside koffice and the libraries
from kdeedu that would be useful to apps outside edu -- and so on, digikam
hsa a couple of useful libraries as well -- and make those libraries, like
kdepimlibs, only depend on kdelibs, not on their ancestral modules.
Then any application from any module can have an optional or required
dependency on any of these extra libraries.
