This has nothing to do with whether or not KDE attracts users. As long as
it's inconsistently licensed, it can have no place in Debian.

If KDE switches to a license that doesn't conflict with the Qt license, it
can go in Debian; in "contrib" if there's no free Qt yet, or, more likely,
in "main" (assuming we'll have a QPL-licensed Qt in the not too distant
