(From your email) I fail to see the advantage as other commenters have
pointed out. What problem is there that cannot be solved using
dependencies and kde/gnome use flags? This decision just seems to
increase the split between KDE and Gnome and that does not reflect
user's realities: They use both. Gnome desktop + kmail, k3b, yakuake or
KDE with evince, etc.
Why add one more decision to make where the result is unclear (and
honestly, profile documentation is almost zero)?
