I think b) is fine for all kipi apps except, because AFAIU they
don't loose functionality compared to their current stable release.

Digikam 0.7 alone loose quite some functionality (I consider released
digikam + digikamplugins as a 'unit').  I'm not sure how many and
loudly would scream because of missing base.

Is there a set of 'stable' kipi-plugins?  So maybe a first mini
release with some/many more DO_NOT_COMPILE entries?  Minimun
IMHO is jpeglossless (rotate), slideshow, printwizard, cdarchiving
and html export plugins.

b) is fine but until digikam release I would like to see c) with
at least above minimum set of plugins.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
