It will not just break kdesrc-build but also the local src code and build 
trees on our developer's systems. E.g. I have the structure setup with kdesrc-
build and imported the projects into kdevelop using the src, build and install 
structure generated by kdesrc-build.

This change would mean dropping all projects from kdevelop and reimport them, 
having to deal with branches not being moved to the new git structure, etc. 
etc. I expect that this would cost me several hours of work on each system (I 
have a build tree on three to four devices). Assuming that other plasma devs 
have similar setups we waste several person days just with shuffling 
repositories around.

So given that I think this is not worth the hassle.
