How is having kdebindings (or anything that's not actually needed at build 
time) in build dependencies a good thing and why would anyone want that? The 
fewer build dependencies, the less risk of breaking the build, the happier 
maintainers and other people working on the distribution as a whole. What's 
more, this is kdebindings we talking about. It is mind-blowing enough to 
package and maintain in a sane state. There is no need to keep other KDE 
modules unbuilt just because one small app needs kdebindings at run-time.
