When people speak of moving KDE to extras, which parts of it do they
mean?  The whole DE, applets, applications, libraries?  QT?  There are
many KDE/QT applications which serve a particular function better than
any GNOME/GTK counterpart, such as k3b.  It would be a shame to lose
some of the better applications simply because they are bundled with
KDE or use KDE infrastructure...
