Note that having many packages slows down dpkg and apt and whatever
that does the package management, regardless of whether the user
ever wants KDE on his system.

I would suggest packaging it as one big package, or something 
that is divided into two or three, no larger.

The same kind of thread continued with gnome-applets 
some time ago. I seem to remember. gnome-applets
comes as one, because it's easier that way for the sysadmin
to handle, when there are so many users on one machine.
