It depends on KCalCore and KContacts which are not frameworks. Once those are 
moved to Frameworks, I will consider moving KGAPI too.

Good point with the KF5 prefix, I will change it to "KPim", which we already 
did for KDAV library and eventually want to do for all our PIM libraries to 
solve the has-KF5-prefix-but-is-not-a-framework problem.
