in short: why? does rsibreak provide something required for a basic desktop? 
it seems like a very useful (and nicely done, btw :) app for helping people 
with computer usage self-discipline, but i don't see it as an application that 
is a must-have for a basic desktop.

the core modules really ought to remain as "the basic stuff" with extragear 
adding lots of colour and fun. otherwise we get hundreds of niche apps in the 
main modules and they lose any point or purpose in life.

things like a character selector, a calculator, wallet manager interfaces, 
disk management stuff, etc are pretty basic building blocks and belong nicely 
in kdeutils ... things like rsi should perhaps remain in extragear, however.

what is the motivation for moving it into kdeutils, exactly? if there's 
something lacking in extragear, perhaps we can address that directly.
