If the SVN kioslave is standalone, wouldn't it make more sense to actually 
keep it in a separate repository/package? So users who just want the Dolphin 
integration can just use that?

Wouldn't it make more sense to move your kioslave implementation into kdesdk-
kioslaves, replacing the older copy?

I'm not sure whether Albert just wants to kill the repository or he's just 
phasing old unmaintained software. In case of the latter, updating the copy 
with the better maintained version probably makes more sense.
