it is in kdelibs :) libplasma contains animations as well. the problem with 
splitting those kinds of things out into their own library is that they tend 
to become unused, deprecated, duplicated, etc, etc. it's happened several 
times in the course of ke over the last several years. but if it there is real 
interest, we could split libplasma into an "effects" library (though it really 
wouldn't be complete enough to justify calling it such a thing) and a more app 
focused libplasma.
