The menu point is always there, I think. It is probably part of kdesktop, 
which is always there when you have a complete KDE installation. kdesktop 
recommends eject. You should almost always install recommended packages. That 
is what aptitude does by default also, though you can tell it not to.

It's kind of the same with the kdepim-kio-plugins. You can use kmail without 
it, but if it is not installed, IMAP won't work at all.
