Using an appropriate summary is fine, but my concern is that it still
doesn't solve potential package naming clashes (where the KDE theme/deco
is a port of a Gnome one, or the other way around). Also, searching for
something like "decoration" turns up quite a lot more than just themes,
and "KDE decoration" is much worse; I actually found the crystal theme
by filtering the "User Interface/Desktops" RPM group entries (something
that is frowned upon by yum, it seems ;-) )...

I agree 100% with the "yum list" part, but KDE-look's default category
names are maybe a bit long..?

For now, I will follow the advice of Rex and Chitlesh, though. Thanks
for the help, guys!
