yes you are exactly correct, it does pull in all that stuff. for me this is
not an issue as at work we have standardized on KDE and at home I run both
KDE and Gnome on my workstation. obviously this may not be desired behaviour
for all installations, and thank goodness xterm is still the gold standard
in reliability/interoperability and stability IMO and is always there. for
me, the big winner with Konsole is tabbed browsing, easy configuration (easy
meaning i can be lazy and use a gui to make changes to key bindings/color
scheeme etc.) and overall performance.

for me" wright ;^)
