Bug#579811: Does linking to libkcal4 really must pull kdepim-runtime ?

Package: libkcal4
Version: 4:4.4.2-1
Severity: normal
Tags: experimental


I'm the maintainer of Tellico, and I tried to build it against the coming
KDE4.4.2 from experimental. I noticed the split of the package into libraries,
which is great. However, I also noticed that they pretty much all make the
application linking to them depend on kdepim-runtime.

This pretty much seems to defeat the purpose of splitting the package, since
tellico ends up depending on kdepim-runtime, which in turn pulls akonadi-server
(and mysql-server-core as well).

Tellico is linked to libkcal and libkabc for really non-core features,
therefore it would be really nice if you could remove the dependency on kdepim-
runtime in the shlibs files, so the users don't end up pulling all the kdepim
infrastructure for an optional feature.

This abviously applies to the libraries tellico depends on, but probably to all
the other lib packages built from kdepimlibs.
