Hi all!

Today I spoke with some KDE folks at the openSUSE Conference and we came
to the conclusion that it would be great if all packages where it makes
sense (mainly libraries) started to use pkg-config files. If they were
in-place we would be able to create cross-distro packages with ease and
even to easily detect build requirements and autogenerate packages as well.

What do you think about the idea?
