when is it going to happen for kdeedu? do you know what other modules similar 
to kdeedu decided (like kdegames?)

no, the problem is a cmake issue to be sure the lib is found before 
dependencies are build. And maybe the lib needs to be splitted?
Same for data/ and I recently asked how to make sure data/ is installed before 
KHangMan and got no answer. So cmake is going to be an issue if noone helps.
We already have distro problems with data so cmake has better to be good in 
order to have right packaging.

There are several possibilities. Either everything is split, or only some 
independent apps are split and other stuff could stay together (like language 
apps for example or math apps). Just ideas.

It would be good if devels would just reply with: I am in favour of splitting 
for <appname>
Otherwise we'll have to take the decision for you.
