Let me just say for the record that this sucks.
kdeedu-marble is a 30MB
download which I have no intention of using, not even
i.e. I don't care about losing the feature and I
conjecture that this is
likely to be true of a great many users. It's absurd
optional. I get it that it's an upstream problem, so
really directed at the KDE folks, but still.
I guess I'll register my displeasure on the KDE BZ.
It could possibly be added as a KService, but I don't
know if Digikam's architecture is amenable to this
(plugins would handle displaying of certain EXIF
tags?). If it can't be made into a KService, there's
not much we can do about it. If it can be, I'd expect
4.4 to be the earliest you can expect it. Mind linking
the bug you filed here?
