It's now been fixed.  Sweet.

Here you go:

    Package: kde
    Architecture: all
    Source: meta-kde
    Version: 4:2.2.18
    Depends: kdelibs3, libarts | libarts-alsa | libarts-bin, libkmid | libkmid-alsa | libkmid-bin, kdebase | kdebase3, kdebase-audiolibs | kdebase3-audiolibs, kdebase-libs | kdebase3-libs, libkonq3 | libkonq4, konqueror | konqueror3, kate | kate3, konsole | konsole3, kdebase-doc | kdebase3-doc, kscreensaver | kscreensaver3, kdewallpapers | kdewallpapers3, kuser, ksysv, kcron, kpackage, secpolicy, kghostview, kview, kmail, korn, korganizer, ark, kab, karm, kcalc, kcharselect, kdepasswd, kdf, kedit, kfind, khexedit, kjots, knotes, kpm, kpaint, kiconedit, kfract, ksnapshot, kruler, kdict, kdepim-libs, kdm | x-display-manager, kit, knode, ksirc, koffice, knewsticker, ktimer, kcoloredit
    Suggests: aktion, kde-i18n, kde-games, kde-extras, kde-devel, anti-aliasing-howto, kdessh, artsbuilder | artsbuilder3, kmix | kmix3, kscd | kscd3, noatun | noatun3, libarts-mpeglib | libarts3-mpeglib
    Filename: pool/main/m/meta-kde/kde_2.2.18_all.deb

Every time I try to get rid of useless (to me) packages like 'korganizer'
and 'kpackage' and 'knewsticker' the Depends line triggers, and dselect
tries to remove my entire desktop environment.  :-|  I've learned to put up
with it -- at least the package management system isn't actively breaking
things, which is more than what I could say for up2date.
