apt-get dist-upgrade will remove metapackages

The last couple of days I have not been able to complete an "apt-get 
dist-upgrade" on my "sid" system, because it warns me that it will remove 
metapackages kde and kdeaddons.  It looks to me as if the problem is caused 
by the newest version of the "vim" packages (1:6.3-068+4):  the changelog 

     + Removed all kvim related packages, the code is no longer maintained.
       Sorry. (closes: #234455, #237385, #283765, #293110, #194449, #205586,
       #266431, #272621, #294848, #245006, #194964)

The dependency sequence

	 kde to kdeaddons to vimpart to kvim

is thus broken.

To me it looks as if kde metapackage is now uninstallable in "sid" which is 
really a pretty serious problem.  Or is there some kind of work-around that 
will satisfy the dependency sequence in some other way?

thanks in advance
