I think that the standard install (tde-trinity I think in the case of Debian) 
is such a metapackage. 

Although I doubt one wins a lot of space, you can rename files 
in /opt/trinity/bin, then delete them if there is no problem. I did this for 
tderandrtray that kept poping useless messages, as well as kaboodle and noatun 
that I don't use and don't want.

I tried this method several time on Windows also, deleting "system software" 
from another system - sometimes with devastating results...
