This is also a request of the Edubuntu team. Edubuntu includes KDE-Edu, which 
manages to pull in kdebase-workspace-bin, resulting in Edubuntu users (who are 
using GNOME with a few KDE apps on top) having full-blown Kubuntu sessions 
installed and being asked about some gdm & kdm things they don't remember 
installing every time they upgrade to a new release.
