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!) :)
