That depends on how you define "working KDE". The KDE metapackage depends
on packages that depend on mysql-server. Most KDE packages do not depend
on mysql-server. You should be able to install KDE, remove mysql-server,
and allow the packages to depend it to be removed as well. On the other
hand, you could just install the packages you need. KDE is just a bunch of
packages that the KDE maintainers think go together. It's already clear
that you don't agree with them.
