The only thing I can think of is that it duplicates information at least
for kdepimlibs and kdebase. Those two modules already install the cmake
config files which (should) contain the same information. Wether or not
that is/should be blocking the addition of pc-files I don't know.
You have a will that can be influenced by all with whom you come in contact.
