Right, I know about those (and I think "we" collectively do) but
nobody ever came to any conclusion about whether to update the kde3
packages from trinity or import those separately or what. Same for

I remember at one point I was going to look into trinity packages, but
that was a lot of IRL timesinks ago, so I'm not going to get to it
anytime in the foreseeable future. (don't use either kde or gnome myself)
So if Someone(TM) would like to take charge of figuring this out that
would be great.
