Actually, there are support for KDE configuration in
debian-edu-config, and I believe we should limit the
debian-edu-artwork package to images and their activation code, and
keep the rest of the KDE configuration in debian-edu-config.

The profile parts that affect the wallpapers and themes would fit in
the artwork package, while the rest should be placed somewhere else.
I want the debian-edu-artwork package to have as little side-effects
and unrelated dependencies as possible, to make it easy to install in
pure debian, kubuntu and edubuntu, and thus hide the fact that the
machine isn't a "real" debian-edu installation. :)

There are already some code in debian-edu-config to configure KDE, and
we can add some conditional activation code to it to make it possible
to adjust the configuration based on group membership or similar.
