When you say "KDE applications", do you mean KDE applications
that aren't part of the main kde modules (kdebase, kdepim, etc?).
For example, I think of digikam and amarok as "KDE applications".

(We really need some new terminology)

Now we are back to my original concept of a KDE SDK release.
Which got shot down pretty harshly IIRC.

In my original proposal, the KDE SDK contained kdelibs, kdepimlibs,
man pages+docs, and helper tools (basically kdesdk/scripts).
