  what existing files?

  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
  package. (*)

  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.
