See Jonathan's comment at [1] what is required by system-config-printer-kde, so
I'd say we can/should do the split and the renaming in one go.

As for the split, I created a wiki page [2] which contains all files installed
by s-c-p. Will add Jonathans comments there. Feel free to add any comments yourself.

Joss, I'm particular interested in your comment on this matter.
