Well, I thought about suggesting kdemultimedia for this release and then 
possibly breaking it back out when we head for 4.x, but decided that would be 
a little silly.  Basically it comes down to a packaging issue -- external 
developers and packagers that are interested in using TagLib in non-KDE apps 
don't really want to have a dependancy on a kdemultimedia package.  

kdeextragear or kdesupport again would have the advantage that it's an "easy" 
dependancy for KDE developers (being most of the target audience) -- i.e. 
they just checkout a new directory 

Well, the idea would be to then add a dependancy on TagLib (for the relevant 
plugins -- and JuK).

I thought about the same -- I have no problems with it going into kdesupport 
instead, it's just that kdesupport's been pretty dead lately.
