And here's a suggestion to address those points, so a modification to the rules 
in the earlier email.

Instead of having 4 stages per category, we actually have:


The build order is like this:
	libsX before libsY for X < Y
	libsX before releaseX
	releaseX before releaseY for X < Y
	libs* and release* before review
	review before playground

That means we could place Qt in "libs", the rest of current kdesupport in 
"libs2"; kdelibs in KDE Base/libs, but the experimental kdelibs-depending stuff 
in KDE Base/libs2.

We could place Konqueror in KDE Base/release, but konq-plugins in KDE 
Base/release2 (same for Plasma and its addons).
