I'm porting KDE to Solaris. We often face difficulties compiling
either due to compiler (Sun Studio) or OS differences. The split will
actually make it easier to make most of KDE available in time for the
users - e.g. as of KDE 4.6 we're not delivering pim, plasma-addons and
bindings due to build issues in some parts.
I'm a bit afraid of having to resolve intercomponent dependencies if
they are not set-up properly.
