I think that's a good idea.

I also don't like "kde-sc" much. I don't think we should drop "full",
otherwise we will get the same effect that the "kde" metapackage had.
If we want to introduce the "sc" part in the name, then imho the
packages need rename as follows:

- kde-minimal -> kde-plasma-desktop + kde-plasma-netbook (provide
kde-sc-minimal)
- kde-standard -> kde-sc-standard
- kde-full -> kde-sc-full

However, I think that "sc" may just confuse users.
"software-compilation" would be less confusing, but that becomes too
long, so I'm not very much in favor of adding the this part in the
names.

George
