Yes, I understand Bodhi can link any group of packages together.

So there are items in this list that could be shipped in a separate 
update without any negative side-effects? I'm not a KDE expert, but I 
don't see a package that could be left off.

If there are cases where package A and B are in an update and don't 
relate to each other and would run without crashing in separate updates 
then they should be in separate updates. I don't see that being the case 
in this thread unless I'm drinking cool-aid, which I very well might be 
doing.
