And that will probably be pretty common, at least on upgrades from
lenny, as korganzer depends on akonadi-server which in turn depends on
libqt4-sql-mysql in current testing. And korganizer is probably
installed by most KDE users. But there's nothing that would pull in
libqt4-sql-psql.

So being lost with no information about the required packages for other
dababase types will probably be very common.

The most beautiful way to solve this, at least from the user's point of
view, would probably be to show all backends that are available in the
repository. If one of the uninstalled backends is selected, the user
should just need to enter the root pw to install the backend. AFAIK
something like this is done for some (non-free)? codecs when they are
needed by totem.
