Note we would need something additional, since kscreen currently doesn't try 
to install those /etc/dbus-1 files, plus more than just kscreen needs them, 
and it can be done with two simple files like I said in another email. So this 
should probably be something done by more generic module, by kdesrc-build 
itself, or maybe by a small script provided by kdesrc-build and mentioned in 
documentation.
