You're getting this all wrong. The "bloat" Jorge was talking about is added
dependencies for common and shared libraries.
Our problem is not with e.g. kmail using akonadi+mysql, but with kdelibs now
*requiring* soprano+viruoso, even for people who only install it to get k3b
All we are asking for is to make these dependencies in common libraries
optional instead of mandatory so that people who don't need the added
dependencies can get away without them.
