it would not make sense for us to ship _three_ file managers by default. having 
krusader in one of the modules that makes up the KDE software distribution 
releases is really not on the table afaic.

extragear is an appropriate location, and krusader may still choose to have 
releases that coincide with KDE releases. we already do this with/for some 
other extragear applications. this gets the benefits of being released in 
tandem with KDE's main "big splash" releases without encumbering the basic 
application set or, for that matter, putting additional burden on krusader in 
terms of release requirements.
