One way to split it could be by interface. As I see it we have a number of
different interfaces in Debian:

Command Line

and KDE outside of Debian.

As a user I might say that I am only interested in the command line stuff, I
never use X11. Or I could say that I am a Gnome user, I am not interested in
the other interfaces.

Just a thought.

Don't worry  --  shop.
