I just got a brilliant idea: Let pacman handle all these. So I added a set of
packages which will make the transition from our current KDE package to the
splitted one really smooth.
As a side effect they can be used by people who want to keep the current
"monster" packages. By using those meta packages possible new packages will
automatically installed on major updates.
Another bonus is that we don't need to recompile third party packages which
depend on certain KDE modules right now. (e.g. k3b, yakuake...)
See the self generating PKGBUILD at http://repos.archlinux.org/viewvc.cgi/kde-
I'll put that into kde-unstable soon. Let's see if that really works.
