If you remove kdenetwork4 (kopete), kdeutils4 (kgpg, kuser) then you can
remove kdepimlibs4, followed by akonadi then mysql.
I'm not sure why kdepimlibs is required by the base system when it does
not appear to be. No binaries or libraries show that they are missing
shared libs. There might be some plugins that you'll do without, though.
Gstreamer is a phonon requirement, although I thought it used xine...
