I would like to remove the akonadi Smoke bindings from the kdebindings module 
for KDE 4.5. I would prefer only Smoke library bindings for kdelibs, 
kdesupport, 3rd party Qt-only bindings and the Qt libs bindings in 
kdebindings. We are very happy to help you move the existing Ruby (plus C#, 
Perl, PHP etc if needed) and Smoke libraries to an Akonadi kde module and help 
support it in the KDE 4.5 release.

I not sure what Simon Edwards and the PyKDE guys think about this. They have 
already moved some python bindings out of kdebindiings and into the svn 
modules that the bindings wrap (eg Marble).
