Could kde-examples not be added to Dirk's dashboard? That's not a
perfect system for preventing compile breakage, but it will at least
notify the folks on IRC when things do break.

Presumably, we'd want each example to be stand-alone and compilable
without the the rest of the module, so each would need to have a "top
level" CMakeLists.txt file. But would it not be possible to add a
module level CMakeLists.txt that add_subdir()s all the individual
exampls, enabling on to build the whole thing in a single go?
