Actually, something similar has happened here.. apt had been threatening
to remove the packages you mentioned above, on my system, for a while..
So last night I decided to see if it could be resolved.. Somehow, KDE
packages got taken out, and now, kdelibs can't be installed. This means
I can't have any KDE apps, such as konqueror (my favourite file manager)
installed. :(

Looking at the dependencies for kdelibs, it seems that a change of names
for the CUPS packages is responsible for the breakage.. Hopefully the
Debian package maintainers will have this fixed soon. :P
