I would advocate for monolithic tarballs (again) in general (not just 
kdeedu), the current quasi-arbitrary half-done hodge-podge kde-4.6.80 
tarballs are quite a mess (with both my packager and release-team hats on).

Split tarballs *after* migrations are final and where it can be 
carefully planned and executed would be more welcome, say for kde-4.8.
