Peter, please note that this is off-topic for this list. This is a list for
the mantainers of kde packages, not for user questions. Next time, please ask
in debian-user, or debian-kde. ;-)

No! This is not true. Both apt-get and aptitude are frontends to libapt. See
'apt-cache depends apt', and 'apt-cache depends aptitude'.

Yes, that's the problem. If you install kdegraphics, aptitude remembers that
this package is installed manually, and installs all dependencies as
installed automatically, so if you remove kdegraphics, aptitude removes all
packages without reverse dependencies, if the user doesn't install them
Solution: don't install kdegraphics if you don't want all the packages that
kdegraphics provides, install the ones you will need.
