Trying to put together a live USB thumbdrive with a set of astronomy

I eventually realized that with xephem out due to licensing, I needed
KStars, which in Fedora is part of the kdeedu RPM.
So to have an Astronomy spin, we have to drag in KLatin, Konqueror, etc.
Does not seem right.
Can we have just a kstars RPM, like in other distros? Perhaps the kdeedu
rpm could have a dependency on a kstars RPM?
Otherwise the Astronomy spin is doomed to always have khangman. Does
every astronomer require Hangman on their desk?
I've just talked about this issue today. kdeedu package will be slitted,
but only after KDE4. I agree that this needs to be resolved, we won't
pull extra mega of stuff with only kstars needed.
Putting Than, the KDE maintainer, in CC. I hope he responds to this message.
for the same
issue in Gentoo and their solution.
