Speaking as a user, I really dislike the KDE practice of packaging 
applications in bundles. The package manager (yum or apt-get or similar) 
should handle dependencies, for everything else, individual applications (or 
application suites, like KOffice) should get individual packages. If I want to 
install Konsole, I should be able to "apt-get install Konsole" rather than 
"apt-get install bundle-of-17-apps-I-don't-want-and-1-I-do".
