apt-get wants to remove needed packages


I am attempting to install mysql-server-5.0 (with apt-get, of course). When I proceed to install, apt-get shows that I will be removing the following packages.

Code:
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  base-config juk kde kdemultimedia libpgtcl libreadline4 libtunepimp-bin pgaccess
Why would it need to remove kde, base-config, juk, etc.?

The same thing was happening with other packages.

I removed the following from sources.list and that fixed the problem.

Code:
deb ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
Can anyone explain why this would be happening?
