But this is an issue that you can not solve by putting it into another KDE 
module. You can only solve it by releasing the software as tarball.

Sooner or later KDE needs to get some package that has to be compiled between 
kdelibs and application modules like kdemultimedia and kdenetworks, and 
compiles them only 'on-demand'. Simply because the number of KDE-hosted 
special-purpose libraries like TagLib will grow and applications will use 
them, but you can not put everything in kdelibs.
