With respect to the wiki, you are free to discuss and make edits to it as it
is a resource made by users for users.

Talking of the official documentation, it seems parts of the split ebuilds
howto are pretty outdated at the moment, in fact the part related to removing
kde is better explained in the kde configuration howto, which should work as
your script does.
Probably a nice plan would be to revise all the old information in the split
ebuilds howto and possibly move something to the kde configuration howto
(split ebuilds are not a novelty anymore), but I don't know if someone is
available for the task...
Thanks for your suggestions.
