We will not split off -data as long as it basically contains *.desktop files 
and is around ~40 kb in size (multiarch is still not here). *-runtime-dev does 
not make sense by definition.

Maybe we could ask upstream to move it to back kdepim(libs)? Debugging tools 
do not really belong to -runtime packages, do they? In my opinion, if to split 
off akonadiconsole, then invent another package name like kdepim-runtime-dev-
tools (similar to qt4-dev-tools) or something.

Why would we need to patch desktop file? We typically ship desktop file in the 
same package as the binary to avoid dangling desktop files.

Yeah, *-runtime-dev name would be confusing. However, I don't think 
akonadiconsole is so important to get a package of its own. A package where 
all such devel tools could be put (in the future) is more appropriate.
