	I was wondering if KDE packages recommend (or at least suggest) 
installing -dbg packages.  In today times, when hard disk space is usually 
very cheap, it could be nice to have all the related symbols.  Maybe a note 
in Description field would be nice as well.

	I will send a note to Isaac regarding this issue.

	Best regards,
