The module name should be "kdeXlibs", no?  perhaps kdedevlibs?
Oh, I see you want plugins and libs together. then could this fit under kdesdk?

Yes, theoretically.  We don't mention anything about big moves
like this on the release plan.

IF we were to do this.. then 
+ The new module should be in place by 8 May.
+ The libs code should follow typical kdelibs coding policies and licensing 
   requirements by the first beta release (25 June).  And kdevelop and quanta
    should be using it.

Or something like that.
