I agree with splitting kdebindings, especially because some parts of it was 
not installable without modifying /usr which I didn't want to. 

Is there an option to split modules and still make it possible to deal with 
them collectively (like you can in SVN with extragear for instance). The use-
case is parttime library developers who just wants the standard KDE 
application that uses the modifying custom kdelibs and core modules? Having 
multiple KDE installations, some from distro, some build from sources, is not 
really a desirable solution, and the alternative is that developers are not 
eating our own dogfood.
