I don't see why gstreamer is surprising unless you were assuming the "g"
stood for Gnome - anyway it's progressively replacing arts in KDE.
mysql-server is the back-end for kpim, cyrus-sasl is a common
dependency of mail clients, so I guess it's for kmail. subversion comes
in with the developer tools. net-snmp does install daemons, but they're
off by default.
