I propose that we remove the entire kdeedu module from the kde4 branch. 
That will give us two major advantages:

1. Actively developed applications do not need to worry about merging 
and contributions to the wrong branch.

2. Less active or unmaintained applications can be reevaluated to 
determine if they should even be put into KDE 4.
