Or it'd require just building everything as one package as we've been doing 
before, which is the easiest way to avoid circular dependencies…

Modularization keeps causing problems like this.

FWIW, since we're planning to ship Plasma Active alongside Plasma Desktop in 
Fedora 17 (parts are already in Rawhide), we'll likely carry these patches 
anyway (if they get released as part of the Plasma Active patchset), though 
we are no fans of copied classes just to avoid circular dependencies (There 
ought to be a better solution!).

I find it also quite funny that the very people complaining about 
distributions patching in features into their kdelibs are doing that very 
same thing as part of their Plasma Active distribution…
