I think the only reason there is anything named with a kdegraphics- 
prefix anymore, as those pieces are still coming from the classic svn 
kdegraphics module.  Otherwise, tarballs are (arbitrarily) named after 
their new git module.

See also the "KDE 4.7 beta 2 as monolitic tarballs." threads on this and
