Allow to install kdesdk-dbg without having to install kdesdk (e.g. for kate debug symbols)

kdesdk (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: kdesdk

Kate crashes here reproducible, but I cannot report it properly because of missing debug symbols.

When trying to install kdesdk-dbg, apt wants to install kdesdk and all its dependencies, too, which is too much.

Please allow to install kdesdk-dbg without having to install kdesdk.
I can see that this might be difficult, because of the versioned dependency, but maybe a Recommends can have a version, too (which is used when the package is installed).
