Can I install KDE4 without installing plasma?

I had a my system running KDE4 and my Hard drive crashed. I ahve replaced it with a RAID 1 configuration and reloaded my data and such. However I did not use sid repos so I only have KDE3.5 installed. The big thing I hated about KDE4 is plasma would crash at least 3 times a day and have to be restarted.

Is there a way to install KDE4 without installing plasma?

Nevermind, I was being lazy when I asked this. I setup a Debian VM and tested it out. Looks like there is no way to do it.

If you try to install kde-minimal it will install the following
The following extra packages will be installed:
  aspell aspell-en ca-certificates consolekit dbus dbus-x11 defoma dolphin
  dpkg exiv2 fontconfig fontconfig-config gcc-4.4-base ghostscript
  google-gadgets-common google-gadgets-gst google-gadgets-qt

  xserver-xorg-video-vmware xserver-xorg-video-voodoo xterm xulrunner-1.9.1
So it looks like the plasma libs and apps are part of kde-base and there just is no way around it.
