We (KDAB's KDE team) will be working to bring all of that infrastructure to
Maemo and Windows CE, as part of our work on a mobile version of Akonadi. Of
course we will strive to get as many of the dependencies as we can upstream
into Maemo. I'm pretty sure that a lot of it is useful and desirable by other
Maemo applications anyhow. This project will ramp up towards the end of this
year and continue throughout 2010.
This one project won't solve all problems with kdelibs being big in terms of
RAM and all the various helper processes, with lots of external dependencies,
etc., but at least I can tell you that some skilled and dedicated folks will
be attacking this problem space full-time and head-on soon. :)
