Well, no. You can remove any of those packages and they in turn will remove
kde-core (using apt-get or kpackage - if you use aptitude and it removes all
a metapackage's dependencies, I can only say it's a pathetic excuse for a
package manager - I tried it once and discovered it also ignores my package
holds). You do need all of those metapackage's immediate dependencies.
But for the purposes of the OP, if you want to get rid of, e.g., kteatime but
keep kmoon, you _have_ to remove the metapackage kdetoys.
