Which is pretty convenient in case one like to see the world in nice colors. But i just raise the
point of kdevelop moving out of kdesdk (and sometime in the future back).
And would like to hint about aseigo and kossebau thinking about moving all apps out of kdeutils and
closing that shop.
And about some problems we have with applications depending/requiring stuff that is at home in
kdebase. We would have to move some of that stuff into kdelibs.
We would loose all that flexibility. if we consider moving with history as an essential point.
