This creates a circular dependency. As well as prevents users and developers from just installing the libraries without pulling in the whole digikam infrastructure.

Are there any 3rd-parties depending on digikam-libs that need this?

These were split out primarily for multilib purposes, nothing more. It's untested to install them without the rest of digikam.

That's a good point.
It sounds like whoever opened up the bugzilla has some product that they believe just needs the libs.
Maybe they have some product and/or test that we could do to make sure things still work.
