libkonq5-templates has is a full subset of kdesktop/lenny

kdebase-workspace-bin contains /usr/bin/kcheckrunning 
( http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=605135 )

I don't see why kdebase-bin is there. kcheckrunning might have been in there 
earlier. but I'm not sure.

It is btw pretty crucial to get rid of kdesktop. It contains a kdesktop 
executable, and more important, a kdesktop autostart file.

a idea could be to provide a transitional kdesktop package depending on 
plasma-desktop or something like that, and make the conflics versioned?
