Description of problem:
I think it would be nice to split kdebase in seperate packages. There's a lot of programs in this package, and people might only need a part of it, especially when not using kde. I would personally install kcontrol (mainly to change the style on Qt based apps) and maybe kate and konqueror, but i have no need for the rest, since i'm a gnome user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kdebase.
I would suggest not to. kcontrol + konqueror + kate would require more than
the half of the kdebase. All other kde packages would have to be changed to
track this as deps. kdebase is one package upstream.
I'm a KDE user btw.
WONTFIX (for now), we may reconsider when working on kde4 bits.
