the only packges in the archive which provide kwin decorations are
kwin itself and kdeartwork-theme-window. however, the baghira style is
provides both kwin decoration *and* widget style (like plastik does).
this could be a good moment to standarize the name of these packages.
I'm CC'ing debian-qt-kde for that purpose (and Ben Burton, who is the
maintainer of kdeartwork).
I would suggest a name like kde-$FOO-style to be used (e.g.,
kde-baghira-style) for packages that provide a widget style for
QT/KDE, and include kwin decoration (if they exist) in the same
packages providing only kwin decorations could be named
kde-$FOO-style-kwin, and icon themes could use kde-$FOO-icons.
if anybody has concenrs with that naming, please speak (only to
debian-qt-kde, if you consider that appropriate).
(*) I am aware that this will make style packages depend on kwin via
shlibs:Depends. I, however, frown upon the idea of spliting
*each* style in two packages.
