I've noticed that kipi-plugins recommends konqueror. From the changelog, this
dependency was introduced almost 10 years ago, when recommended packages
weren't even installed by default. From what I've found, konqueror doesn't seem
to be used by kipi-plugins anymore, so, I guess, it's time to remove this
so that konqueror doesn't get unnecessarily installed for non-KDE users.
