KDIFF3 katastrophe

Installing KDIFF3 added over 50 packages to my box! Basically installing KDE on my GNOME desktop. Really, a merge tool depends on a desktop?! Uninstalling took 2 hours, since Deborphan didn't recognize KDE as an orphan, so I had to manually get the ball rolling.
In short, unless you are already using KDE or you just really love KDIFF3, I suggest sticking with a GNOME or Tk based diff/merge tool, like Meld or TkDiff.
