Meta package depends issues,  kubuntu-desktop-trinity in this case. No 
harm in removing it other than the 'flag' changing on the packages.

The autoremove scenaro will only occur if you run 'apt-get autoremove'. 
Kind of a pain,  but you can set the packages slated to 'autoremove' to 
manual install. Not sure how to do this gloabaly, aptitude might do it. 
I have done it for individual packages. i.e. 'apt-get install 
<package>' will sett he flag to manual if the package is already 
installed. Aptitude is morre efficient.
