Yeah, we're still inventorizing the what and how. It won't happen on short 
notice, and the Git migration should be long behind us by then. Splitting it 
up is actually quite a lot of work, as there are quite some interdepedencies 
between individual parts of kdelibs.

I'm actually looking at it now already, to bring it up here at the Randa 
sprint in order to prevent a similar mess like with the Git migration from 
happening, so we're very much on the same side there. :)
