KDE and too many programs

I usually don't take the time to install KDE the way I want, but now I am 
getting very interested in paring down all those programs to the ones I want 
and need, and those I don't.

A big part of the problem are the metapackages and how they control the need 
for all the tools. 

Are metapackages safe to remove? Then customize the package choice as I wish, 
while paying, of course, close attention to the dependancies involved? Ubuntu 
seems to act as if they are crucial to the upgrades being handled properly.
