Bug#448274: general: Create a meta package named debian-kde-desktop

Package: general
Severity: wishlist

I suggest the creation of a meta package named for example debian-kde-desktop which should 
install the most common used KDE aplications in a Desktop and KDE Desktop with Debian artwork.
At style of meta package kubuntu-desktop in Ubuntu project.
A general configuration may be:
-Open Office as office suit.
-Kaffeine as video player.
-Amarok as audio player.
-D3lphin as default File Manager (It is easy configure KDE 3.5 for it).
-Konqueror and Iceweasel web browsers availables.
-Gwenview as image viewer.
-Gimp as image editor.
-Kwrite or kate as text editor.
-Adept suit for Package Management (adept-manager, adept-updater, adept-notifier, 
adept-installer), including software-properties-kde.
-Kmail as mail manager.
-Gdebi-kde for manual installation of Debian Packages.
-Ark for file compression.
-k3b for CD/DVD burning and Audio/Video extraction.
-speedcrunch calculator.
-gtk-qt-engine configured for a well presentation of possible installed gtk aplications in KDE.
-xmodmap and kmilo well configured for having special keyboard keys available.
-kooka for use scanner.
-kdpf or acroread for PDF viewing.
-qt4-qtconfig installed for configure qt 4 aplications apparience (as speedcrunch).
-ksystemlog for view system logs.
-kmix for volume management.

And any other aplication useful for Desktop use and management. The idea is to install one 
aplication for each function trying to choose the best aplication for each function, 
for example is a waste of disk having installed gwenview and kview,
kaffeine + kaboodle + noatun, speedcrunch + kcalc, adept + kpackage ...

You shoud do the same for XFCE Desktop and Gnome.

I hope for you acept the idea.
