What is the procedure for replacing the binary package by one from another
source package?

Could I maintain my package outside kde-extras team in this case?

Also I have offtopic question:
How can translations for kde-gtk-config get into kde-l10n-* packages?

kde-config-gtk-style has only 4 functions:
1) Selecting available Gtk 2 theme.
2) Selecting few paths for searching Gtk 2 themes in the system.
3) Setting up the same font as in KDE applications.
4) Setting up font manually.

Features 2) and 3) are not available in kde-gtk-config.
