would it hurt binary compatibility? i suppose so so perhaps isn't feasible at 
this point of kde4?
in this case Theme, Svg, FrameSvg and PaintUtils could make sense in a library 
on their own that should be relatively small..
don't know if other parts of libplasma could be splitted as well.. perhaps the 
dataengines and graphics stuff?
