I'm looking for a package in between the very minimal set and the full fletched everything. I'm interpreting kde-core as the very minimal set, and kde as the full fletched set.
The in-between set could include kdeadmin, kdegraphics or a subset, at least kpdf and kghostview, maybe kdemultimedia, kdenetwork and kdeutils.
