tdegraphics dependency on kmrml-trinity seems too strong/unappropriate

I noticed today that tdegraphics depends on kmrml-trinity. Is the dependency strictly required or can we remove it and 
instead add a "suggestion" for kmrml-trinity in tdegraphics?
The reason for asking is that kmrml-trinity installs a control module in "system administration" that comes up with a 
"Cannot find executables gift and/or in the PATH. Please install the GNU Image Finding Tool" 
error message is GnuIFT is not installed. I do not use Gift and do no see any need to use it, and the same is true for 
the associated control module. So I would like to be able to remove the package, but do not want to sacrifice 
tdegraphics for that.
Comments are welcomed. I can take care of the changes if you agree.
