It is actually not so bad with kdemultimedia. I am just reacting from having 
to deal with an exploding number of kdesupport modules. If all KDE modules get 
equally divided then you need to individually check-out 100s of modules, and 
individually configure them and individually build them. The beauty of the 
current system is that you can both checkout modules complete or in parts and 
while they often require collective configuring you can build and install in 
parts if you desire. If git equally gave the opportunity to collective build 
large numbers of projects then it would be a lot less time consuming.

Right now, I am trying to randomly guess which order the new FIVE modules of 
strige needs to be compiled in. There is no instructions, no hints, and you 
need to checkout, configure, build and install each of them individually and 
in the right order. Sigh...
