Joe User goes to kde.org and downloads and builds kdelibs, kdepimlibs,
kdebase-runtime, kdebase-workspace and the nonexistant kdeplugins  all
version 4.6.0. Now he does nothing for 6 months, and downloads and
builds kdelibs, kdepimlibs, kdebase-runtime and kdebase-workspace, but
*not* kdeplugins.

Jane Packager downloads and packages 4.6.1 for her distro, for 4.6.2 she
notices that the only diff between 4.6.1 and 4.6.2 in the kdeplugins
module is the change of version number and chooses to spend her time on
more important issues.

I don't consider these cases 'screwing up', but very likely situations.
