Simply install KDE with Synaptic, apt-get or what ever you like and then
simply remove GNOME. "Simply" removing GNOME won't cause
inconsistencies, but maybe you have to remove a lot of packages
manually, since removing meta-packages won't remove network-manager,
evolution, gcalctool etc., so you better don't install GNOME in the
first place.

I agree that we shouldn't install GNOME to a Linux anymore. Upstream
forces hard dependencies to PA and systemd, big intransparent buggy
blobs. I bet Debian soon or later will switch to systemd too. Current
Evolution 3.6 can't share Emails with e.g. Evolution 3.2.3, GNOME
nowadays is crap. A long time ago I switched to Xfce4, unfortunately I
can't use it's maildir with other maildir compatible MUAs.
