The central part of libkholidays is the code we borrowed many years ago from a
project called "Plan".  This is the code that parses the holidays files.
See scanholiday and parseholiday.

AFAIR that code was released under the GPL.

Problem is: we have a requirement for LGPL in kdepimlibs.
So we can't move without relicensing the code or relaxing the licensing.

But, there are several other GPL libs in kdepim that really need to move into kdepimlibs.
I need to see if we can relax the licensing for kdepimlibs.  I'll work this.
