I could perhaps have been clearer if I'd put that question after the next
question in that email, because I am focusing on getting KDE installed on a Sid

So, how about in Sid?  

Should someone installing KDE on a base Sid system install kdegraphics &

If not, any idea when those will be in Sid and ready to install?  
Is someone working on getting those packages into Sid?  Who?

What about all the other packages ChrisC has mentioned recently?

Shouldn't the install line look more like this:
"apt-get install  kdelibs kdebase kdeadmin kdemultimedia kdenetwork kdepim"

[And maybe also include, (if these are now available in Sid) "kdegraphics
kdeutils".  And, also include, as you suggested, "kdm konsole konqueror kate
noatun kcalc frozen-bubble"?  (Are none of those included as part of the
packages listed on the above apt-get line?)]

Which of those (listed on that apt-get line), packages, if any, should not be
installed on a base Sid system as of now?

Also, how important are kdegraphics, and, especially, kdeutils, to having a
functional KDE-Debain system?
