Well, libkface has "independent releases"... just because they are done
as part of the usual KDE SC/whatever releases.
As you (or they) describe the situation, it seems like kdegraphics is a
dumping ground for stuff which is developed on its own anyway, but whose
maintainer refuses to release on its own. This sounds *bad* to me,
especially that digikam is released so often, that having to release
some extra library from time to time (*) should not be an huge overload.
(*) not all the "extra" libraries bundled with digikam get changes in
each release, so doing released only when having enough
bugfixes/features is the best way to go
