OK, adding kross-interpreters into KA5 would work. I was just thinking
it doesn't really belong to "KDE Applications": any
application/product using Kross may benefit from kross-interpreters.

kross-interpreters is only a run-time dependency, that's why nobody
noticed it was missing (except for may be people who use Lokalize KF5
and expect Python scripts to work.) Even if Plasma starts using Kross,
this doesn't imply that kross-interprers should be released with
