FWIW, during this year's Osnabrück KDE PIM meeting we shortly discussed 
the licensing policy for kdepimlibs and we agreed that we want to allow 
GPL'd libraries for KDE PIM if the need arises. We also agreed that 
those libraries should not be put into kdepimlibs, but that they should 
be put into a package of its own, because mixing LPGL'd and GPL'd 
libraries in kdepimlibs would cause headaches for many people.
