qdepends displays DEPENDs but kde-meta defines RDEPENDS, and all of
those are themselves just meta packages.

kde-meta RDEPENDS on kde-*-meta and should show up with qdepends -r

Be careful how deep you do this search, anything you come up with will
probably not do the search you want. Rather search the deps of each
individual kde meta package.

You can't just do a simple deep recursive search, that will find the
deps of a package, find the deps of those packages, and the deps of
those.... by the time this ends, the command will list probably all of
@system and @world
