And break with upstream package name, package name that the current users are 
already accustomed, and kdebase and kdelibs should not be sub-packaged, so 
they will still have these nasty Epochs. I see no advantages here.

BTW, I had difficulties into installing koffice because of this reason: a 
simply yum install koffice didn't work. Then I installed one for one until I 
found out koffice-suite exists (dumb me!) :)
