Let me start with showing my great appreciation for involving the
list/users in this :-)

About that: I started removing the doc stripping from my own KDE
packages. I quickly discovered that it will add some complexity because
we still should strip all the non-en subdirectories. Anybody got a cool
way to accomplish that?
I'm thinking about asking upstream to support linking to online
documentation in some way, perhaps as a compile-time option that will
also disable the documetation generation.

KDE + gamin has proven rock solid here ever since gamin was imported
into opt. I haven't had to restart gam_server a single time. Let's see
how the native solution works.

inotify.h is already in linux-libc-headers 220.127.116.11 which is part of
glibc from the 2.2 branch :-)
