correct, GEOIP tagging feature, which is linked into the application, so
it's not possible to remove the hard dep (without losing the feature).
Let me just say for the record that this sucks. kdeedu-marble is a 30MB
download which I have no intention of using, not even for geo-tagging,
i.e. I don't care about losing the feature and I conjecture that this is
likely to be true of a great many users. It's absurd that this isn't
optional. I get it that it's an upstream problem, so my complaint is
really directed at the KDE folks, but still.
I guess I'll register my displeasure on the KDE BZ.
