[trinity-users] TDE package(s) installing kdesudo as unwanted "recommends" in Squeeze

I noticed when reinstalling kaffeine-trinity that also installed as 
"recommends" were :

kdesudo-trinity, kpackage-trinity

I do not use or want either of those on my Debian system and can't see 
the reason for this.

Although it is not a problem for me to purge them, this could be seen by 
some Debian users as another example of enforced use of Ubuntu-style 
sudo on Squeeze/TDE

It is not easy to work out whether installing (especially multiple 
packages) with "no-recommends" is a good thing or not; that sometimes 
means reduced functionality.

My concern is, there are probably other TDE packages which behave 
similarly. I don't know if this counts as a bug or is for some reason 

Any comments?
