There are a couple things missing in the kde metapackage that I use (like 
kmail).  I did notice it appears in one of the other kde metapackages, so i 
did an apt-get -t unstable install kde kde-extras -s.  The kde-extras wanted 
to change more of my system to unstable than I wanted so I backed out.  The 
deps on just the kde metapackage don't appear to change anything other than 
kde packages.
