shared-desktop-ontologies 0.8.1-1 is installed. Still, when I try a
dist-upgrade (or rather full-upgrade) to experimental, aptitude suggests
to remove 140 packages. I don't think this is caused by KDE by itself,
rather it is because other installed (unstable) packages are in flux in
experimental. Among the suggested removals are gimp, lots of libghc-*
packages, libreoffice, and various nvidia packages.
As far as I can tell, my main problem is that a full-upgrade to
experimental is far too unspecific. I'd rather have a way to upgrade
only the KDE packages and their dependencies.
