I agree we are too late.

If KScreen is so much better, i'd make sure packagers know about it and they 
can install KScreen and not KRandR if they want, even provide 
replaces/conflicts rules.

But since we are 5 days away from "Release Candidate" day, don't think 
removing (or disabling) something from kde-workspace is a good idea.
