It's taken some time to get used to, but I love aptitude.  But I'm _still_ not 
going to use that d$%*ned GUI!  :-)

Start with "aptitude upgrade", then it will upgrade most of the " ...useful 
packages...", and leave you with a much smaller problem list.

To follow up, if the problem is  a managable size, I'll then try upgrading a 
specific package to see which one is triggering removal of kde.

I've concluded that apt-get (much as I've loved it for years) is obsolete.  
Aptitude from the command line is better - yet command compatible.  It's 
definitely going to screw things up, though, if you're using both.
