Default FYI: libical 0.40 moves libicalvcal headers


I just built libical 0.40 for F10 (discussed with the libical maintainer
already). Rationale:
* should be fully API- and ABI-compatible (same sonames),
* at least 0.33 will be required to build KDE 4.2 (F10 currently has only
0.32), so upstream KDE developers who work on Fedora have asked us to build a
newer version so they can keep working on KDE development on Fedora,
* having a version >= 0.33 also allows us to build kdepimlibs 4.1.2 against the
system libical (with a patch).

There is, however, one minor change: the libicalvcal headers are now
under /usr/include/libical along with the other libical headers,
not /usr/include/libicalvcal as they used to. It is possible to make
compatibility symlinks (of the individual files, not the directory, replacing
directories with symlinks is a big no-no with RPM), so should we add them? Or
does this change not affect any package anyway?
