The only reason to put in into kde-libs is the fact, that all other
Nepomuk stuff is in there too.

That's my problem, I have no idea where it really could belong. So
I'll settle for extragear/base for now as I think that's the best
solution for now.

While most parts can be safely installed by any user, the
Nepomuk2:Service should only be installed/activated, if the user is
aware of its function. As it tends to query web resources a lot
(especially when nepomuk indexes files the first time).
This is not something someone wants on a low bandwidth/Mobile/Limited
internet connection

But I assume this is something the packagers have to split.
