Well you know my objections. In the intervening time since we discussed this, 
I've not changed my mind. :-)

Just briefly
. most of the signals on kdevelcomponent need to be canned and replaced with 
. The kdevelopcore code is too complex. Most of this code belongs in the 
. kdevelopcore shouldn't know anything about the modules it is loading.
. There should be no hardwired ordering of loading modules.
. kdevelopcore shouldn't "forward" signals to other components. This code 
would be replaced with events anyway.
. No actions should exists in kdevelopcore. These all belong to components. 
(a possible _tiny_ set of exceptions will probably exist)

The question you have to ask is "How easy is it for a developer to remove an 
existing component(s) and replace it with another". I think when you start to 
think about those steps you may see that the framework isn't quite ready yet.

One of the problems I have in working on kdevelop2 is that I do not know what 
the plans are for it (especially for the framework).
