Let's hope so. Anyway I had an idea about whole Trinity, I already
talked about this with Calvin and he liked this idea.
I'd split whole trinity into 3 components: Trinity Libs, Trinity
Desktop Enviroment and Trinity Apps. And call the whole thing Trinity
Trinity libs: qt3, tdelibs and other libs we provide
TDE: things only needed for desktop Enviroment. panels, menus,
kcontrol, kwin ecc...
Trinity apps: apps based on Trinity libs, but which do not require TDE
to be run.
What do you think about it?
Besides, split current tde* monolithic groups into single apps. Do we
have any reason to keep them as they are?
