Sure there is. Let's look at what happens if you remove it:

* It makes doing future EAPIs more work, since we'll almost certainly
end up rewriting things that we'd be taking out.
As much as you might like to rewrite history to pretend it never
existed, the fact is, kdebuild-1 did exist and we're better off
