Dunno if dropping 'kde' makes sense. Dropping the 'base' makes sense,
since its mostly a historical artifact. But workspace is KDE's
workspace under past and present marketing schemes, so it makes sense.

Plasma-workspace might be ok as well, even with Aaron's point. Just
"workspace" seems way too generic. Remember this is the name the
tarball would get, probably the name (new) distros would give the
package as well...
