this would be absolutely critical indeed.

something that is completely opaque to me in this discussion so far is whether 
the idea is to:

a) grind kdelibs into a fine dust of classes, rename some from KFoo to QFoo 
(and all the Qtification that implies) and reorganize the remainder (which 
should be a minimal set) into a new set of K* libs


b) define a new set of granularities for libraries in kdelibs (non-ui, 
desktop, framework, etc.) and split up our existing classes along those new 
lines, keeping names largely in place


c) do a bit of (a) and (b), and if so what the guidelines for deciding when to 
do (a) and when to do (b) are

probably because it isn't a concrete plan yet, but rather a general proposal. 
these are the kinds of details that are needed before we can move on.
