Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater. kuickshow can go as it is
duplicated in tdegraphics or one of the others. mlt/mtt++ do have dependency
value (I forget which package, but I chased that dependency down 2 or 3 years
ago and it was still worth keeping even being i686 only).

If I recall correctly knetworkmanager8 AND kpowersave ARE required for QT3
3.5.13 builds. Let make sure our decisions are technically correct and not
simply based on whether anyone chooses to build them anymore.

What I would like to know is "What in the heck are 'l10n' packages anyway?"
