In addition to what Rex said above, it would also cause massive bloat
update metadata, hurting even people who don't run KDE at all (at every
single update push, even those which don't touch KDE packages, you still
have to download all the metadata each time it changes), and possibly adding
up to a lot more bandwidth than what you save by not downloading some apps.
Interesting thought, I wonder what the consequences would actually be.
Anyway, Rex said that we're moving towards a more modular KDE anyway,
because of the ability to run them on netbooks, etc. Will be
interesting to see if this becomes a problem.
All this has been pointed out in previous threads. It would really help if
users would read the f… uh… fine ;-) mailing list archives rather than
asking the same questions again and again!
As mentioned, I did go through all threads for 2010..
