[arch-general] should kdepim-libkdepim-4.4.10-1 and kdepim-runtime-4.4.10-1 still be on the system with kde 4.6?

  Removing kde4 from a test box to work with Trinity, I ran across a few kde4
files that looked like they were orphans. I had already removed kde4 with:

pacman -R kde gtk-kde4 kdebindings-smoke kdeplasma-addons-libs kmldonkey
konq-plugins kopete-cryptography qtcurve-kde4 yakuake

  Checking /usr/share/autostart, there were still files present. So checking
ownership I found:

15:51 supersff:~> l /usr/share/autostart/
total 40
drwxr-xr-x   2 root root  4096 Feb 17 15:32 .
drwxr-xr-x 404 root root 12288 Feb 17 15:47 ..

15:52 supersff:~> pmq -o /usr/share/autostart/kaddressbookmigrator.desktop
/usr/share/autostart/kaddressbookmigrator.desktop is owned by kdepim-runtime
15:52 supersff:~> pmq -o
/usr/share/autostart/polkit-kde-authentication-agent-1.desktop is owned by
polkit-kde 0.99.0-1

  Trying to remove the packages listed dependencies I thought would have already
been removed when I removed kde:

15:52 supersff:~> sudo pacman -R kdebase-runtime kdepim-runtime polkit-kde
checking dependencies...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: kcoloredit: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kdebindings-python: requires kdepim-runtime
:: kdepim-libkdepim: requires kdepim-runtime
:: kdiff3: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kfax: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kgrab: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kgraphviewer: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kiconedit: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kpovmodeler: requires kdebase-runtime
:: kwebkitpart: requires kdebase-runtime

  I guess if they are just dependent on the kdebase-runtime, then they could
have been separately installed. The big thing that caught my eye were the kde44
version on the kdepim files when I went to remove all the dependencies:

15:52 supersff:~> sudo pacman -R kdebase-runtime kdepim-runtime polkit-kde
kcoloredit kdebindings-python kdepim-libkdepim kdiff3 kfax kgrab kgraphviewer
kiconedit kpovmodeler kwebkitpart
checking dependencies...

Remove (13): kwebkitpart-1.1-1  kpovmodeler-1.1.3-3  kiconedit-4.4.0-1
kgraphviewer-2.1.1-1  kgrab-0.1.1-3
             kfax-3.3.6-2  kdiff3-0.9.95-2  kdepim-libkdepim-4.4.10-1
             kcoloredit-2.0.0-4  polkit-kde-0.99.0-1  kdepim-runtime-4.4.10-1

  Is there any problem with the kdepim 4.4 files with the kde 4.6 install?  Just
thought I would run this by the experts.
