Not sure exactly, I can't actually see why there's a KDE specific category
for something that could be served by just including both categories and a
SuSE category that just replicates a standard category.  Perhaps they mean
something else.  Not sure, seems crackish to me.

Why not, pragmatically, just add all the categories that fit, even if they
are suse/kde specific, they don't hurt on systems that use only standard
categories as long as you include those as well.
