Umm, that wasn't my suggestion.  But anyway, this sounds good to me,
whether or not there's a separate kde-time-wasters package or not. :)

If this is split out, though, it's unclear to me where kdeedu would
go.  Some of the packages there, like kstars and kmplot, would be of
general interest, whereas others are clearly game-type.  Probably the
metapackages would have to list the packages from kdeedu individually
to split them appropriately.
