If we do this, ideally we would also mark kwebkitpart as dependent on kde-
baseapps in the kde-build-metadata.git repo. This will prevent tools like 
kdesrc-build or some of our continuous integration testing software from 
trying to build kwebkitpart first (which would prevent cloning kde-baseapps).

Actually, I can do this now just in case we do it anyways (it would have no 
effect until kwebkitpart is moved to "kde/kde-baseapps/kwebkitpart"). If we 
end up not going through with this please let me know so I can back out the 
change though. ;)
