I think the problem is that libkolab makes use of KDE libraries which are 
still not separated within their Frameworks effort. So currently an actual KDE 
package is pulled in that pulls in lots of other stuff as well.

The solution for this has been libcalendering, but Debian won't accept it, 
since it duplicates existing code/symbols.
