If KWM eats 15-20M on your system, then something must really be
fscked up there.

The .debs should probably preserve namespace by shoving the KDE stuff
somewhere like $KDEDIR (/usr/kde/?) instead of all over the place
(/var/spool/???  please).  Not to mention, the other unsupported KDE
applications expect a $KDEDIR.  I actually think KDE should drop .debs
altogether.  I went straight to tar.gz and I'm much better off.

The GNOME debs are worse and take up /etc/sound, /etc/CORBA,
/etc/paper.config, /etc/mime-magic, /usr/bin/panel and more instead of
something doing something sensible like shoving config files in
/etc/gnome/* and naming GNOME panel /usr/bin/X11/gpanel.

P100, 32M, IDE, ATI Mach 64.  Sorry, no intolerable slowness here.
