Hi Samuel,

this needs to be fixed. Otherwise I'll have to consider dropping
gnome-orca from the default GNOME installation.

Pulling in unused KDE and Qt libraries is not desirable on a default
GNOME installation.

Please consider moving the qt-at-spi dependency to some other package.
libqt-something might be a suitable place so it will be pulled in
automatically whenever a KDE/Qt app is installed.

universe are pointed away from Earth?
