OK it's a lot clearer to me now.

I thought a division was an overall selection of everything
(like kf5-qt5 was).
Now I see, it's a group of modules, e.g. just KF5, or just Plasma5.
This makes a lot more sense, and leads to understandable naming, I like it :)

I assume a future kdesrc-buildrc will look like a selection of *one or many*
divisions, with a track for each one, then.

All sounds very good, +1.
