That explains it -- very useful! I installed kcontrol and expected to
get kwindecoration; I didn't know it was in another package called kwin.
I can now uninstall kdebase and its dependencies, making for a much
cleaner server installation.
Since all the other appearance modules get installed with kcontrol, I
suggest adding kwin as a suggests or recommends for kcontrol.
Please close the bug report.
