It would make sense to split kdepimlibs though.
They are already fully independent and it would make it more attractive to be used by others.
Pimlibs is considered as a big monolitic library blob, while that is not true. Especially in the mobile world it would be good to have a set of small separate libraries, and in fact that is what pimlibs is.. It would make the individual bits of pimlibs more attractive to use by apps.
I'ld advise to split pimlibs.
