kdelibs itself is not modular so there is no compelling point to split it into 
small pieces now. Qt apps simply cannot sanely pick up solid because it does 
not provide its own .pc file nor separate cmake config file. kdelibs is one 
huge find_package(KDE) and that's not packagers fault. Alex, how are your 
efforts with modular kdelibs going?

Likewise, whole KDE is very monolitic, but that's hardly news for you.

What's more, KDE has already promised compatibility of core KDE libraries and 
this should not change.
