amarok currently pulls in kdebase (afaict), which pulls in the rest of those deps.
I'll take a closer look to see if there's something we can do about that.

Maybe amarok-konqueror should Obsolete the previous versions of amarok.

Feb 26 12:18:13 Updated: amarok.i386 1.4.8-4.fc8
However, that upgrade has not pulled amarok-konqueror. Once amarok has been
pushed to updates, today, I have seen that there was now a subpackage for the
konqueror extensions, and I have installed it today:
Mar 07 08:21:43 Installed: amarok-konqueror - 1.4.8-4.fc8.i386
I do not see why the Obsoletes: has not pulled the new package. My Yum
