kdelibs is already split into smaller dependencies that you could opt out of.
Everyone links to kdecore, kdeui and KIO, though. Don't blame kdelibs for your
designing of your library and application with them.
Also, in the KDE 4 design process, we agreed that any and all KDE applications
requires the kdebase-runtime package to be installed. So you need not only the
libraries, but the programs from there as well.
Let's face it: we designed KDE to work in KDE.
