and the overhead of that is? i'm counting 5MB on disk here and two extra 
packages. seeing as without a functioning nepomuk, we end up with hobbled 
applications that seems a worthwhile trade off.

if the issue is that k3b doesn't use any of the libraries that link against / 
require soprano/virtuoso, then perhaps kdelibs could be broken out better in 
the packaging?
