the reason i didn't suggest kdesdk was that:

* it gets shipped as part of KDE core releases, so the code would either not 
be part of the default build (which is part of the current problem) or get 
installed on user's computers (not what we want). a major problem here is that 
if it isn't part of the build, we don't get buildbot coverage.

* it would potentially give kdesdk dependencies to other modules

* it would increase the size of the module for what's really not very 
interesting code to most people

i personally like the idea of kdesdk being focused on being a software 
developer kit containing useful tools to do development with rather than a 
teaching kit.

the benefits of having it in kdesdk are:

* people already know it (and likely have it)

the examples and demos in qt are kept separate from the dev tools. that seems 
sensible to me.
