On the todo list, there are stand alone packages that installs in /opt/kde 
(amarok, basket, etc).  I think we should skip them for now and move them 
out of /opt/kde at the same time as KDE. It'll be more logical and these 
apps might have problems being in /usr.

As many packages include a browser plugin, it will be nice to know if 
the mozilla stuff will be moved and, if so, where the new plugins directory will be.
